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. Captain Vancouver arrived in Desolation Sound on the evening of the 25th of June. At daybreak they found themselves “about one half mile from the shores of a high rocky island surrounded by a detached and broken country whose general appearance was very inhospitable. Stupendous rocky mountains rise almost perpendicular from the sea.”
