Navire Danois embarquant de Blocs de Marbre
DESCRIPTION: A gem! This small, highly-detailed copperplate engraving by the French artist Jean-Jerome Baugean published circa 1814 depicts a Danish sailing vessel at anchor loading large blocks of marble from a lighter. The mizzen sail is set, presumably to help maintain the ship's position while loading.
This engraving is from a series of 72 fine engravings of merchant and naval vessels created and engraved by Baugean (1764-1830)- "Collection de Toutes les Especes de Batimens de Guerre et de Batimens Marchard." Baugeans engravings are notable for their accuracy and detail.
