A painting testifying to one of the most successful ventures involving two English privateers; the 'Duke', 20 guns, and the 'Prince Frederick', 28 guns, commanded by Captain John Talbot, which captured two out of a squadron of three French merchantmen returning from Lima. The ship to the left of the picture is the 'Marquise d'Antin', port-broadside-to with her colours struck, sails in disarray, holed by shot and her main topmast shot away.
