'HMS Sirius' Print

John Allcot was one of Australia's leading Maritime artists. His paintings of tall ships have won him worldwide acclaim.

SIRIUS: The guard ship to the first fleet. Regarded as second only to Cook's Endeavour, in the historical records of the Australian Nation. In this painting, Allcot depicts her with an increased sail area in readiness for the long arduous voyage around the globe.
