Frigate departing Portsmouth, 2008
Type 23 frigate, FF Almirante Condell.
See below for Details on Frigate departing Portsmouth, 2008
Marine painting by Gordon Frickers 30 x 40 cms (12″ x 16″).
Commissioned by the MoD & BAE Systems (Surface Fleet Solutions) as a gift for the Chilean National Navy, produced in secrecy with the full cooperation of Royal Navy, Portsmouth Dockyard and the MoD & BAE Systems personnel.
The choice of 30 x 40 cms (12″ x 16″) was because the painting was intended from the beginning for the Condell‘s wardroom.
Of the details here please note the actual size of the ship in the original painting is quite small, about 3″ (7.5 cms) so this nicely illustrates the quality of the painting.
