'The Royal George', (1931). HMS Royal George, launched in1756, was a 100-gun ship of the line of the Royal Navy. The largest warship in the world at the time, she saw service during the Seven Years' War and was the flagship at the Battle of Quiberon Bay. She sank while undergoing routine maintenance at Portsmouth in August 1782. She was heavily overloaded, with an estimated 200-300 relatives visiting the officers and men. She took on water as the cargo shifted, resulting in the loss of more than 800 lives.

This giclée print delivers a vivid image with maximum color accuracy and exceptional resolution. The standard for museums and galleries around the world, giclée is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are “sprayed” onto high-quality paper. With the great degree of detail and smooth transitions of color gradients, giclée prints appear much more realistic than other reproduction prints. The high-quality paper (235 gsm) is acid free with a smooth surface.
