A First Rate Man-of-War Driven Onto a Reef of Rocks, Floundering in a Gale

George Philip Reinagle painted so well the force of nature, it is very inspiring to think how he worked on this piece in 1836 from his memory. He was probably not there on this scene painting when the storm actually happened.
