The painting is presented and supplied in its original ornate frame (which is shown in these photographs) supplied by John Beer Carver and Gilder, 101, Park Street, Camden Town.

The painting is signed lower left.
The canvas was originally supplied by John Reeves, Artist Colorman of 2 John Street, Tottenham Court Road.

Ebenezer Colls was an English maritime artist who worked and exhibited from London, including at the British Institute.

His oil paintings of great ships are highly collectable; two are currently held by the National Maritime Museum at Greenwich.

This dramatic nineteenth century oil on canvas depicts a seascape off the Hampshire & Dorset coast where The Solent meets the English Channel. The seas are rough with a heavy swell and a sailing vessel with white sails is being tended to by a smaller pilot boat, which has a red sail. The crew of both vessels can be seen, with further men in the water, clinging to rigging that has been lost to the sea. There are seagulls flying overhead, and the distinctive white cliffs of the Needles are in the background.
