About this Item

Title

  • Overtaken in a Hurricane, Jamaica.

Summary

  • This watercolor is from an album of original drawings and watercolors done by an English lady by the name of Catherine Street, about whom further information is unavailable. The album also includes military scenes, a view of the battle of Waterloo, and pictures of Britain and Europe, painted in the early years of the 19th century and published in 1821. This vivid sketch, painted in 1812, shows a moment of pandemonium as the horse balks, probably frightened by the storm, thus threatening to deposit all five carriage passengers in the water. The watercolor is part of the Anne S.K. Brown Military Collection at the Brown University Library, the foremost American collection devoted to the history and iconography of soldiers and soldiering, and one of the world's largest collections devoted to the study of military and naval uniforms.
