Artist's description:

Commissioned for charter by the east India Company in 1732, the Deptford built Princess Louisa sailed the lucrative trade routes to the Far East carrying cargoes of coffee, silks, spices and hoards of Spanish treasure. On the ship's final voyage sailing from Portsmouth the East Indiaman ran onto a reef off the Cape Verde Islands. Stuck on the rocks the ship gradually broke up sending the cargo, including chests of Spanish silver coins, to the bottom of the sea. The Princess Louisa and this painting of the historic East Indiaman features in a book I have written and illustrated, Three Greenwich Built Ships, published by Amberley Publishing in 2013.
