A Ship of the Line Firing Cannon off the Coast - Sold

 An incredibly fine oil painting on canvas depicting a Trafalgar period ship of the line attributed to highly regarded marine artist Thomas Luny.  The ship in the foreground is firing it's cannon, presumably saluting the arrival of a further ship heading in, the scene contains a good deal of activity with numerous figures and small rowing boats and with a highly detailed depiction of the ship and sailing boats in the foreground.  The painting is a very fine early example of the work of this well known marine painter; it is a good size and has a strong and detailed composition.
