Post A London Quayside
Hello,

Does anyone know of anywhere online to see a painting called "A London Quayside"? I know it is/was on display in the Victoria & Albert Museum. It dates from 1758.

Thanks,

Chris

I think it may also be called "A Thames Side Quay". There is a picture on the V&A website but it's very small, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Chris,

Can you provide a link to the picture on the V&A site? I tried doing a search, but didn't come up with anything useful.

Have you tried emailing the V&A for more information about the painting?

Thank you, I think I may have to subscribe to that service to get to see the full size painting. I was told there is a couple of sailors in double breasted waistcoats in it. I am currently thinking of making one and am looking for documentation as to when sailors took to wearing them.

....how interesting! That's one of the reasons I so enjoy portraits .... just the 'photographs' of yesteryear, a record of what they wore, what they looked like .....

I don't know if you have ever visted the The Lewis Walpole Library website but they have an awesone collection of period sailor drawings. Use the Quick Search box with the terms sailor, tar, sailors (with the 'S'), jack, navy and nelson and you will come up with tons of images. The great thing about the site is you can enlarge the pictures quite big to see all the details of the print.

Not sure if the following helps, but it does allow you to enlarge the image (the largest version I've been able to find online);

Note too that a full colour print is available from the V&A.
