Ship Eliza, heavy gale at S.W. Light
Pencil on paper sketch of "Ship Eliza, heavy gale at S.W. Light", December 21, 1795, from the Latrobe Sketchbooks, by Benjamin Henry Latrobe. The simple pencil sketch is an earlier version of "Situation of the Eliza" (19188.8.131.52.14), which features a three-masted wooden sailing ship, named "Eliza", being tossed in large ocean waves. Above is a moonlit night.
