Here is a series of watercolors I picked up back in 1992 while vacationing. They were done in 1871-72 by Admiral Evelyn Le Marchant (1948-1949) during his days as a cadet, and were part of a lot of 26 from which I was able to afford 10. I've spent the last 11 years trying to determine who bought the other 16. I know nothing about the ships he painted, other than the names and that they were (mostly) ironclads. Full sized these are about 12"X 10" and the colors are considerably less lurid- I had to scan them in their frames and then use a color restore program which made them seem a bit too florid. Anyway, scan #1 is of the HMS Minotaur.
