Portée et contenu

A genre scene / marine scene depicting a view of the Crow's Nest of HMS INCONSTANT from the deck below. It is a rectangular platform in the upper part of the main mast and is supported by wooden structures underneath and from the edges of two sides of the platform to the mast, by a fan-shaped arrangement of blocks and lines. A sailor wearing a broad-brimmed hat with a low, flat crown is leaning over a protective rail across the platform while handling a sail rolled in a spiral hanging down from above the crows nest. Two other figures are standing on the paltform and another sailor is climbing up the supporting rigging. At the right, the artist has suggested a number of signal flags flying from the rigging. In the background is a square-rigged sail hanging from its yard.
