The Association Print

A portrayal of Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell‘s flagship Association by noted marine artist Oliver Hurst, commissioned in 2022 specifically for the Longitude Pen project.

Based upon period models of ships of that era, we believe this will be a realistic representation of how Association would have looked. The painting is designed to portray Association late afternoon on 22nd October 1707, a few hours before she met her end on the Gilstone, so is dark, foreboding, and dramatic – partly because of the weather but also as a premonition of things to come. Unlike contemporary drawings, only her upper deck guns are run out, as the lower ones would have been stowed due to unlikely necessity for imminent use and the tempestuous seas.

Printed on high quality Innova Exhibition Etching 315gsm paper.

The A2 print is available in a Limited Edition of 300 (edition number stamped on the print) and is also available in A1 and A0 as a special order.

Prints are shipped directly from the printer. Please allow a week for dispatch.
