HOG BOATS &c

NEAR THE BATTERY, BRIGHTON, MAY 1830

Drawn and Etched by E.W.Cooke

Published London 1830 in Cooke's "Sixty Five Plates of Shipping and Craft".

A fine antique print of Hogboats or Hoggies drawn up on the beach at Brighton, Sussex, England. Hog boats were a popular small fishing craft local to the Brighton area in the 19th century. Their wide beam rendered them stable in rough weather and also made them easy to haul up on to the beach.
When no longer seaworthy they were often cut in half and used as storage sheds for fishing gear. One such can be seen here.

A crisp, dark impression in fine, clean condition. Dated in the plate.

 Approx. 9" x 7" (225mm x 175mm) to the plate mark as shown, with wide margins beyond, printed on heavy grade wove paper, blank verso. 


Edward William Cooke (1811-1880) was a highly respected 19th century marine and landscape artist. Born in Pentonville, London he was inspired by his father George Cooke the celebrated engraver, and much influenced by the Dutch marine artists, having travelled extensively throughout the Netherlands.
The etchings he published in" Sixty Five Plates of Shipping and Craft" are fine examples of his work and make wonderful prints for framing and display.
