The HMS Royal Adelaide was the guardship at the port of Plymouth which can be seen in the background of the picture. Brierly came from England to Sydney in 1842 on the yacht Wanderer under Ben Boyd. He managed Boyd's whaling business at Twofold Bay until 1848 when he joined Captain Owen Stanley on HMS Rattlesnake to chart the Great Barrier Reef, the southern coast of New Guinea and the Louisiade Archipelago. In 1850 he returned to England across the Pacific on HMS Meander. After serving as a war artist during the Crimean War he visited Australia again in 1868 during the Duke of Edinburgh's world cruise on HMS Galatea. Highly regarded in his lifetime as a marine artist he was knighted by Queen Victoria in 1885. One old crease to one corner - see photo. Museum standard mount.
