Sloop vu par l'avant; Prame venant de mouiller
DESCRIPTION: "Sloop vu par 'l'avant" is a highly-detailed nautical copperplate engraving by the French artist Jean-Jerome Baugean. Published circa 1814 the small plate shows a sloop from the bow under full sail after it has passed a pram at anchor (Fr. Prame). In this context the pram is a large 3-masted flat bottom ship with about 10 cannon.
This engraving is from a series of 72 fine engravings of merchant and naval vessels created and engraved by Baugean (1764-1830) in the series: "Collection de Toutes les Especes de Batimens de Guerre et de Batimens Marchard." Baugeans engravings are notable for their accurate and detailed depictions of ship construction and rigging.
