    Literature
    See John Munday, 'E.W.Cooke, A Man of his Time', Antique Collectors' Club, Woodbridge, 1996, illustrated plate 305, page 362.
    A small oil version is known, also dated 1864, no. 64/21, illustrated plate 266, page 320 op. cit., the only difference being that Cooke has changed the pilot number D3 from the hull in this watercolour to DP5 on the sail in the oil.
    John Munday believes these two pictures may have been painted 20 years before when the pilots were his subject in drawings and paintings.

    We would like to thank John Munday for his help in cataloguing this lot.
