Description:
Anton Schranz (Ochsenhausen 1769-1839 Malta) A British frigate entering Grand Harbour, Valetta, Malta oil on canvas 14½ x 23 3/8 in. (36.9 x 59.3 cm.) Provenance R.D. Grimm, 1967. Born in Ochsenhausen, Germany in 1769, it is recorded that Schranz arrived in Minorca sometime between 1793-94. Captured by the British in 1798, although returned to Spain under the Treaty of Amiens in 1802, Minorca had become a British naval base. Many of Schranz's patrons were British naval officers and whilst there he concentrated on painting ships of the Royal Navy in the grand environment of the harbour of Port Mahon. However, once the British had captured Malta and developed a naval base there after the Napoleonic Wars, Minorca was phased out. Consequently, in 1817 Schranz moved to Malta where he continued to execute his views of Royal Naval ships lying in Grand Harbour, Valetta. He died there in 1839. His work is represented in the Royal Collection.

A splendidthree-decker of 120 guns, she measured about 2,616 tons and carrieda crew of 594 officers and men, 66 boys and 160 marines. Firstcommissioned in January 1823, she remained in Plymouth for severalyears as one of the harbour's guardships and then did some shortspells of service in the Mediterranean before becoming flagship atPortsmouth in 1836. After further commissions in the Mediterranean,she returned to Portsmouth in 1850 to becomeGuardship-of-the-Ordinary and remained there until 1854 when,following the outbreak of the Crimean War, she was sent to theBlack Sea as flagship to Vice-Admiral Dundas. Action there includedleading the Anglo-French fleet in to bombard Sebastopol on 17thOctober 1854 but, when peace was concluded, she came home toPortsmouth where she was laid up until recommissioned on 1stJanuary 1859 as the first training ship for naval cadets.
