    This is a very attractive painting which has many distinguishing features of Chambers' best work, as may be compared with illustrations in Alan Russett's biography. The setting off Dover was a popular subject for him (vide. view in the Royal Collection), the Dutch 'smalschip' with red-jacketed crewman centre foreground is typical and the handling of the approaching ship under full sail, the sea-state and other elements are characteristic.

    We are grateful to Alan Russett for his assistance in cataloguing this lot.
