The ship 'Beagle is shown moored off James Island, on October 17th 1835. The topographical view is taken from the coastal sketch ordered by 2nd Lieut. Sullivan at the time. The details of the 'Beagle' were taken from Admiralty charts and records. The Artist, John Chancellor (1925-1984), originally a merchant seaman, latterly chartered his own hydrographic survey vessel and on retirement became one of the foremost marine artists of the 20th century. This painting of the 'Beagle' was one of his last productions- it took 500 hours of research and 750 hours at the easel, is meticulous in it's detail and full of atmosphere and interest. The run of 850 copies was sold out within 12 months and has been keenly sought since then. It is used on the 'Beagle Project' and the CUP 'Darwin On-Line' websites and is also the foundation work for the building of a replica 'Beagle'. Chancellor took considerable trouble to find the best color printer for the work and the copy offered here is in excellent, bright condition.
