This painting “A dispute settled“.

This large painting commissioned by a descendant of the families involved has now passed to the gentleman’s son and is likely, we hope not for many years yet, to pass to his grandson. Its highly original composition was carefully researched including from family archives.

A model at the time at Cotehele House Maritime Museum was useful as was ‘Merchant Schooners’ by Bazil Greenhill and the archivists at the National Maritime Museum Greenwich, London.

I am too indebted to another good friend, Patrick Selman, sail maker, who took me to sea, to Falmouth bay in his Falmouth working boat ‘Agnes’ to check out the background details for this painting and for “Last Departure“.

Rhoda Mary” and “Katie Cluett” were considered the “Cutty Sark” and “Thermopylae” of the coast trade, crack ships & very smart.

The little sloop “Mary” was another family built vessel designed to work locally, completes our composition; Mary was also noted for her speed.
