Signed 'R. Sormeni' (lower right)
Oil on canvas
20 x 24in. (51 x 61cm.) Framed
Built in 1883 for the Anchor Line, City of St. Louis enjoyed a typical career for a Mississippi excursion steamer. In October 1889 however, she happened to be near the Corona when her boilers exploded and killed 46 passengers and crew, including the captain, sinking almost immediately. The loss of life would have been far greater had City of St. Louis not immediately collected survivors. Sold in 1903 to T. Marshall Miller for $3,125, she burned at her moorings on the 29th October almost exactly twenty years after her launch.

SIR GEORGE ROSE SARTORIUS, R.N. (BRITISH 1790-1885)
Shipping off the Belam Tower, Portugal
Signed 'G R Sartorius' (lower right) and inscribed 'Belam Castle Tagus' (left middle)
Watercolour
6 x 9in. (15 x 23cm.) Framed
George Rose Sartorius enjoyed a long and interesting naval career, joining at the age of eleven, and was Admiral of the Fleet when he died. At the time this picture was painted, he was probably serving as a temporary Admiral to the Portuguese Fleet having been brought in to keep order during a politically difficult time. Often spending his own money to keep mutinous men quiet, the Portuguese authorities attempted to arrest him when he threatened to remove the fleet as security. However, he arrested the arresting officers and negotiated his departure which was achieved without remorse in 1833, his successor, Captain Charles Napier, wisely refusing to budge until payment funds were proven forthcoming.

The Bombardment of Sebastopol, 17th October, 1854 at 3.35pm: H.M.S. Trafalgar's guiding paddle frigate Retribution's mast being shot away by the enemy.

11½ x 17¼in. (29 x 44cm.)
For details of H.M.S. Trafalgar please refer to lot 63 where the moment in this picture is mentioned.
H.M.S. Retribution enjoyed the distinction of being the first custom-built paddle frigate in the Royal Navy and was launched in 1844. Suffering from the usual failings of any prototype, she was significantly modified in 1847-49, after which she proved a very successful ship. Sent to the Black Sea to support the fleet at the outbreak of the Crimean War, she scored the winning hit on the arsenal at Odessa during the 12-hour bombardment on 22nd April 1854, and was likewise employed off Sebastopol on 17th October the same year where she was damaged but survived until scrapped in 1864.
