About this Piece
A specially commissioned oil painting on canvas of HMS Centurion.
HMS Centurion was a 60-gun fourth rate ship of the line of the Royal Navy, built at Portsmouth Dockyard and launched on 6 January 1732. The 1719 Establishment dictated the dimensions of almost every ship being built but due to concerns over the size of British ships compared to their continental rivals, Centurion was actually built 1ft (0.3 m) wider across the beam than the Establishment prescribed.
The painting has been stretched and mounted in a hand made Chippendale style 3.5" swept frame with slip in metal leaf finish.
