Footnotes

  • The present lot depicts the closing action of the Battle of the Saintes on the 12th April 1782, in the West Indies, with the isolated flagship Ville de Paris overwhelmed by Barfleur and captured, along with the French commander admiral François Joseph Paul de Grasse known as the Comte de Grasse. The previous year the Comte de Grasse had presided over the command of the French fleet at the Battle of Chesapeake on the 5th September 1781 which directly led to the subsequent surrender of Lord Cornwallis at Yorktown.
