GEOFF HUNT, P.P.R.S.M.A. (British, Contemporary)
Oil on Linen Canvas
24 x 36 inches (61 x 91.5 cm)
Signed, lower left, and dated 2014 lower right
Commissioned through Marine Artists for a Private Collection in Chile
In front of the Rock, an enduring emblem of Great Britain's sea power, Geoff Hunt has painted the lovely Surprise, a name famous both in British naval history and through Patrick O'Brian's fictional ship commanded by Captain Jack Aubrey.
Here we see Surprise on a fine, clear day heeling to port with her bow coming up out of the waves. Some of the tiny details of the rigging indicate that this could be the fictional Surprise rather than the historical ship, which was sold out of British service in 1802, but this image could be either the fictional or historical ship.
