£ 950

Artist: Daniel McDaniel

as a young boy in Naval uniform, HMS Victory in the distance, Portsmouth Harbour
Pastel and coloured chalks, Signed and dated 1851

There is no record of the Prince joining the navy but it was common for young boys to be portrayed wearing sailors costume. Aged four, He was first given a scaled-down version of a sailor's uniform worn by ratings on the Royal Yacht. He wore it during a cruise off the Channel Islands and delighted his mother and the public alike. Popular engravings spread the idea and by the 1870s the sailor suit became normal dress for boys all over the world.

McDaniel (Macdonald) of Cork was noted for his pen and ink portraits and caricatures of local celebrities. In 1842 he sent four pictures to the Royal Hibernian Society and again in 1843 and 1844. Soon after he went to London where he exhibited at the British Institution, 1847 -1851. In 1853 he exhibited at the Royal Academy. His life was cut short by fever in 1853.
