HISTORICAL PLYMOUTH ART FOR JUNE AUCTION

Historical views of Plymouth from the early 1800’s offer are to be auctioned this month.

Read Plymouth historian Chris Robinson's, feature on the art work.

With all the interest surrounding the 200th Anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo, the defeat of Napoleon and Napoleon’s subsequent appearance in Plymouth Sound on board the Bellerophon, it’s interesting to speculate on what life was like and indeed what Plymouth was like in 1815.

There had been no written history of Plymouth published by that time, although a couple of learned gentlemen had made attempts on the task.  Clearly there were no photographs either, but there were a number of maps, plans, prints ... and paintings.  In 1977 John Somers Cocks compiled a reasonably exhaustive catalogue of all the known prints of Devon images (over 3,500 of them dating between 1660 and 1870), many of them images from around the Three Towns, but as far as I’m aware no-one has ever attempted to put together a similar catalogue of paintings.
