Death of Captain James Cook – George Carter 1783

George Carter (1737–1794)

It’s getting pretty naval around here…   I am not including the native side in my detail as I have no idea how correct this artist maybe on that aspect.

Detail: sailor clothing, marines, boats, muskets, slops, striped trousers, handkerchief, sword, hair, hats, muskets, sailor
