EDITORS COMMENTS
This hand-coloured engraving, titled "Cartegena, from Drakes West Indian Voyage 1585 - 86" takes us back in time to the late 16th century. The print, created by Baptista Boazio and part of a private collection, showcases the historic city of Cartagena during Francis Drake's voyage to the West Indies. In this intricate artwork, we see a bustling scene filled with ships sailing through crystal-clear waters. The British fleet dominates the harbor as they chart their course towards new horizons. This map-like depiction not only captures the essence of exploration but also highlights the strategic importance of Cartagena as a key port for colonial powers. The artist pays attention to detail by including flying fish leaping out of the water, adding an element of liveliness and natural beauty to this historical representation. As our eyes wander across this stunning engraving, we are reminded of Carthage in Tunisia and its rich Arab civilization that once thrived on North African soil. Through Boazio's skilled craftsmanship, he transports us into an era where Africa played a significant role in global trade and cultural exchange. This print serves as a testament to both European expansionism and African influence within history. As we admire this piece from Fine Art Finder's Stapleton Collection today, let it serve as a reminder of how art can transport us through time and space while igniting our curiosity about past civilizations and their connections across continents.
