This painting, originally by Nicholas Pocock who was an English artist known for his many detailed paintings of Naval battles, depicts the Battle of Quiberon Bay in 1759. This battle resulted in the destruction of the French fleet when they broke out of the five month English blockade of Brest.
The painting shows Admiral Sir Edward Hawke’s ‘Royal George’ in the left centre, with his blue admiral’s colour at the main, in action with Admiral Hubert de Conflans ‘Soleil Royal’ to the right. Hawke had relentlessly pursued the French ships as they fled into in Quiberon Bay despite the treacherous seas and failing light.
