    A HISTORICALLY INTERESTING OIL PAINTING ON BOARD showing a captured 'Three Masted Frigate Under Sail At Sea' in the early 19th century. Well painted with realistic movement of the ship and the sea, it is signed with monogram on reverse & part of a London art galleries label.The interesting feature is that the Red Ensign is carried upside down at the stern in humiliation, indicating it is a captured British vessel, in this case by the post revolution French Navy whose tricolour flys at the Mainmast.. Circa 1871.

    NOTES : "THE WORLD UPSIDE DOWN "...See second image....A 17th century English ballad. Tradition has it that when Lord Cornwallis surrendered at the Siege of Yorktown (1781) to the Colonists in the War of Indpendance the British miltary band played this tune....The second image shows another painting, not on offer, depictiong the US Columbus of the Continental later the US Navy with a captured small British Brigantine /merhcantman, the Lord Lifford 1776 with the Red Ensign upside down. The Columbus flys the Grand Union flag of the British East India Company, with the Union flag in the top corner and stripes…which was the first flag of the US after indpendance later replaced by the Stars & Stripes.The Captain, John Paul Jones was a Scot, founder of the US Navy.

    Research so far has shown that the signature CHARLES H MOORE,on the reverse is probably not that of this artist, an American, who left a promising career as a painter to become among the first art historians at an academic institution in the United States at Princeton University. He died in Hampshire , England in the early 20th century century.

    A SET OF FOUR FRAMED LARGE ENGRAVED PRINTS.. VERITABLE SOCIAL COMMENTARY DOCUMENTS.. if you will.. early 19th century scenes featuring early Victorian Gentlefolk.. enfranchised... in their progressing, civilised, evolving culture.. to vote in the evolving society.. in their somewhat idyllic, comfortable, lively settngs... in this treasured period of progress. This estate, fought for... arguably earned, over centuries of adversity.. to an arrived at priviledged World presence.... Appreciate the Rockwellian social detail..

    PASSING the PORT : one can imagine the visitors horses tethered outside..pawing, snorting, awaiting the trot home in the moonlight to the rectory or manor house..owls and foxes going about their affairs....except that none of the guests are wearing riding boots...!

    A MEETING WITH THE LAWYER : Backdropped by his filing system....his essential manageable chaos..working with ability, knowhow and effect...the laboriously prepared documents under scrutiny, the fine chimneypiece, the practical, functional and understated quality but new furniture, new in those days.. everything in this room, probably in somewhere like Bedford Square, so comforting to the 21st century eye. Hopefully not discussing divorce formalities...

    "Entered according to Act of Congress in the office of the librarian of Congress at Washington New York, the British Art publishers Union limited 15 East Seventeenth Street printed in London by J. Broocker & Co. "
    "London, published in 1895 by L.H Leferre 1st King Street, St James L.W. the proprietor."

    THE OLD SOLDIER / SQUIRE : Re living Waterloo... at table with his pals.. the Butler, the Irish Linen tablecloth cleared to relate a battle manoever, the embossed leather Dutch draft screen...paravent... and imbibing.

    And then the elderly Squires gracious Lady with her younger companion with the fourposter bed quilt.. their fabrics...which women relate to still today, so focused , knowingly, and beguilingely.

    Elegantly simple civilised Humanity like this ... so hauntingly atttactive, desireable..producing in todays language a considerable feel good factor. English early 20th century.

    An 18th century, possibly much earlier, gros and petit point needlepoint tapestry in the Flemish medieval style, of a lady and courtier flanked by a unicorn and lion bearing standards, in the millefleur tradition of the original, from which it is inspired. The original collection, known as " The Lady and the Unicorn " a series depicting the six senses, this one representing " Hearing ", are displayed in the Musee de Cluny in Paris.

    COMMENTS : Needlepoint tapestry dates from Ancient Egypt, 1600 BC, and was practised by 15th century Flemish craftsmen in this case from designs for the French Court. In this tapestry the lady plays a portative organ on top of a table covered with a Turkish rug. Her maidservant stands to the opposite side and operates the bellows. The lion and unicorn once again frame the scene holding up the pennants. Just as on all the other original tapestries, the unicorn is to the lady's left and the lion to her right - a common denominator to all the tapestries. In our example the positions are reversed. The Lady and the Unicorn: "Hearing" one of the famous series of Hearing, Smell, Sight, Taste, Touch...and Desire. Research continues.
