Description: 'The Thames, or the Triumph of Navigation', by the artist James Barry. The image includes two couplets from the poem 'Cooper's Hill' by Sir John Denham (1615-1669): Nor are his blessings to his banks confin'd, But free and common as the sea or wind; So that to us no thing, no place is strange, While his fair bosom is the world's exchange.
Creator: James Barry
Date: 1 May 1791
