Peter Pett and the 'Sovereign of the Seas' (1637)

Peter Lely

A three-quarter length portrait to right, wearing a black gown and his own hair. His right hand holds a pair of dividers, alluding to his status as one of a famous family of ship designers and builders. The stern view of the 'Sovereign of the Seas', takes up the left half of the picture. Built by Pett at Woolwich in 1637 to the designs of his father, Phineas Pett, she was believed to be the most powerful ship of her day and was the prototype for all 100-gun English first-rates which followed.
