This is a very rare Pencil and Chalk Drawing of HMS Pandora in the same year it had its name changed to USS Jeannette. The Drawing is well framed and in great condition. It is monogrammed by the Artist and dated in the bottom left hand. The handwritten name is to the bottom centre. The artist’s initials look like JB. The way the artist has captured the Ship and the water in only chalk and pencil is fantastic. The history of the vessel is below. The frame measures 40 x 34cm and the Sketched area is 25x19cm. Please excuse the reflections in the Glass The vessel had begun its active career in 1861 as HMS Pandora, a Royal Navy gunboat. After more than a decade’s service off the West African coast and in the Mediterranean, Pandora was retired from duty and sold as a private yacht to a British explorer, Allen Young. Young took her on two voyages to the Arctic, in 1875 and 1876, before selling her to James Gordon Bennett, Jr., proprietor of The New York Herald , who changed its name to Jeannette. Although it sailed to the Arctic under the U.S. flag, subject to naval laws and discipline, Bennett remained responsible for the costs of the expedition. USS Jeannette was a naval exploration vessel which in 1879–81, under the command of George W. De Long, undertook an ill-fated voyage to the Arctic. After being trapped in the ice and drifting for almost two years, the ship was released from its ice-grip, then trapped again, crushed and sunk some 300 nautical miles (560 km; 350 mi) north of the Siberian coast. De Long and most of his crew reached land, but many of them, including De Long, subsequently perished in the wastes of the Lena Delta. In 2015 a Russian explorer and media celebrity announced that there were plans to raise Jeannette from the seabed, as a gesture of Russian-American friendship.
