This work depicts an episode in the 3 summers that Captain Vancouver charted the Washington, British Columbia and Alaska coasts, during 1792, 1793 and 1794, and is one of over 50 that John has painted. Periodically through the voyage it was necessary to put the ships on shore for maintenance. To this day there is a rectangle about 50 feet wide and 150 feet long on the beach in Restoration Cove that is cleared of rocks and boulders. Every once in a while after a hard day’s work the crew would drink spruce beer and be given free time to relax and sing.
Taxes, framing and shipping extra.
