Robert Taylor’s glorious Maritime Masterwork depicting the exploits
of eighteenth century naval hero Horatio Hornblower.
In this triumphant visual recreation, the Royal Navy frigate Indefatigable,
under the command of Captain Pellew and with the young Midshipman Hornblower
aboard, engages and captures a French frigate.
Winter in the Bay of Biscay would have brought ferocious gales and bitter
cold for the hardy ship’s crews aboard the warships of the Royal
Navy blockading the ports off the west coast of Napoleon’s France.
But the British sailors were a tough breed and any chance of action came
as a welcome relief, and perhaps the opportunity of prize money to be
won. If an enemy ship can be captured!
Robert Taylor’s magnificent and now famous painting Hornblower and
the Indefatigable depicts the first exchange of cannon fire between the
Indefatigable and a 40-gun French frigate attempting to run the blockade
on a chill winter’s morning. As the first rays of a watery sun illuminate
the action the two ships edge closer and within minutes both hulls will
crash together, with the French vessel being boarded and taken.
When it was first published as a limited edition, Hornblower and the Indefatigable
was nominated for the prestigious ‘Collector Editions Award of Excellence’
in recognition of outstanding creation and its easy to understand why
