Artist's description:

Built at Woolwich Royal Dockyard in 1751, HMS Dolphin, a fighting frigate, served the nation in times of hostility and discovery. Combating against ships of the Spanish and French navies, then the Americans during the War of Independence, the Dolphin circumnavigated the globe on two occasions, the ship's commander, Samuel Wallace discovering Tahiti. The frigates final duty was bringing home from India one of the nation's greatest of maritime heroes, Horatio Nelson, before the Dolphin was broken up at Woolwich in 1777. The Dolphin and this painting of the historic frigate features in a book I have written and illustrated, Three Greenwich Built Ships, published by Amberley Publishing in 2013.
