T.S. Robins. "The Iron Steam Yacht 'Alexandria,' 416 Tons."
London: Messrs. Fores, 1852. Lithograph by E.T. Dolby. 12 x 17 1/2. Original hand color. Very good condition. Framed.
A lovely example of one of "Fores's Marine Sketches," this showing the steam yacht "Alexandria," which was built for Tsar of Russia in England. The yacht, shows steaming by a number of other ships and a light-boat, appears sleek and luxurious. A pair of small boats with fishermen using a net appear in the foreground. A very good example of British marine art from the middle of the nineteenth century.
