Antonio Jacobsen, County of Edinburgh (at Point Pleasant Beach, New Jersey)

Mariners' Museum, Newport News

Date: c. 1902.
Technique: Oil on canvas

The image shows County of Edinburgh stranded on the beach at Manasquan close to Point Pleasant, New Jersey, having run aground on the evening of 12th February 1900 whilst en route from Cape Town to New York. She was driven ashore at high tide by strong winds that then turned her broadside. Fortunately the winds shifted to off-shore so that she was in no immediate danger of destruction. She was re-floated on the especially high-tide of 14th February having suffered no ill effects apart from the acute embarrassment of her master, Captain I. Webster. Jacobsen probably drafted the later painted image from a contemporary press photograph of the event.

John Constable, Stonehenge

Victoria and Albert Museum, London

Date: 1835
Technique: Watercolor, 38.7 x 59.7 cm

Constable painted this watercolor at a sad time in his life. Both his wife, Maria, and his closest friend, John Fisher, had died, and his two eldest sons had left home. He is perhaps expressing his personal unhappiness in the watercolor, for the image is certainly a melancholy one. The painting was exhibited in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition of 1836. Some of the lines that accompanied this painting in the catalogue describe 'The mysterious monument of Stonehenge, standing remote on a bare and boundless heath...'. Constable himself probably wrote them.
