Abstract:

Pocock was one of the great figures of English marine painting in the eighteenth century. His work is of outstanding interest to maritime historians because, in addition to his skill as a painter, he had spent many years as a sea captain. He used his early experience to great effect and earned the confidence of distinguished naval patrons. Pocock is unusual in that so much supporting material survives. Working drawings, sketchbooks and letters abound, allowing the author to draw an exceptionally rounded picture of a man who meticulously recorded British maritime history for nearly forty years. -- Jacket.
