HMS Warrior, 1860 - Oil on canvas 24” x 37” 1997 Commissioned by the Captain of the ship. This painting shows HMS Warrior leaving Portsmouth Harbour on her first commission in 1861. She was built as Britain’s first ironclad battleship to counter the perceived threat of the French battleship ‘Gloire’. HMS Warrior never fired a shot in anger and she can now be seen in her berth in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.

Portsmouth Historic Dockyard - The HMS Victory at Portsmouth's Historic Dockyard is one of Hampshire's most popular tourist attractions. Launched in 1765, she is best known as Lord Nelson's flagship during the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. HMS Victory currently resides in Portsmouth, where she has been since 1922, having undergone a series of restorations. Portsmouth's Historic Dockyard is also home to the HMS Warrior and the Mary Rose (the new museum opened earlier this year).
