American Frigate at Anchor

Fregate des Etats unis d'Amerique faisant secher ses hamacs.

DESCRIPTION: Attractive and scarce original nautical antique copperplate engraving of an American frigate by the French artist Jean-Jerome Baugean. Published circa 1814 the small plate shows an American frigate at anchor. According to John Harland: "The mizzen topsail is set, and the wind-sail just seen abaft the fore mast was used in hot weather to ventiilate the gundeck; the crew have washed their hammocks, and these have been triced up to dry… This is one of the smaller frigates, possibly the Boston." (Harland, John. "The Maritime Prints of J.J. Baugean", Chatham Publishing. London, 2000. p. 40.)
This antique 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.
