Provenance Lord and Lady Gretton, Stapleford Park, Leicestershire; With Richard Green, London, by 2001; From whomacquired by the present owner. Catalogue Note Thomas Whitcombe was a prolific marine artist, though little is known about the details of his life. He exhibited at the Royal Academy most years between 1783 and 1824 and was one of the preeminent recorders of ships and sea battles of the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic wars. Here we are presented with the final sea battle of the War of American Independence, 1775–83, which was fought between the British West Indies fleet commanded by Admiral Sir George Rodney and his French counterpart, Vice-Admiral the Comte de Grasse. Rodney ultimately won the battle by employing his novel tactic of'breaking the line', which was subsequently adopted in the Navy as a desirable addition to fighting instructions, and which he is still remembered for to this day.

Between that year and 1806, she normally traded between India and China, but - as a 'licensed ship' – sometimes voyaged to London. From 1807-11 she ran direct from London to China , but then made intermediate stops at Penang (1812-13) and afterwards at Batavia 1814-15. Resuming her direct London to China service between 1816-17, she spent her last years in the East trading between India and London. Sold to Bassett & Co. of London in 1825, she was then resold to the Mexican Navy for use as a frigate-of-War and renamed Libertador.
