HORNBLOWER AND THE INDEFATIGABLE GICLÉE CANVAS PROOF
by Robert Taylor
Robert Taylor’s glorious Maritime Masterwork depicting the exploits of eighteenth century naval hero Horatio Hornblower. In this triumphant visual recreation, the Royal Navy frigate Indefatigable, under the command of Captain Pellew and with the young Midshipman Hornblower aboard, engages and captures a French frigate.
Winter in the Bay of Biscay would have brought ferocious gales and bitter cold for the hardy ship’s crews aboard the warships of the Royal Navy blockading the ports off the west coast of Napoleon’s France. But the British sailors were a tough breed and any chance of action came as a welcome relief, and perhaps the opportunity of prize money to be won. If an enemy ship can be captured!
Robert Taylor’s magnificent and now famous painting Hornblower and the Indefatigable depicts the first exchange of cannon fire between the Indefatigable and a 40-gun French frigate attempting to run the blockade on a chill winter’s morning. As the first rays of a watery sun illuminate the action the two ships edge closer and within minutes both hulls will crash together, with the French vessel being boarded and taken.
When it was first published as a limited edition, Hornblower and the Indefatigable was nominated for the prestigious ‘Collector Editions Award of Excellence’ in recognition of outstanding creation and its easy to understand why - this glorious new GICLÉE CANVAS PROOF is a masterpiece!
