Daily Question – 149

Tina Brown (former editor of the New Yorker, Vanity Fair) started the website the Daily Beast recently. The site takes its name from that of the fictional newspaper in Evelyn Waugh’s novel Scoop.

This is Geoff Hunt, one of the world’s finest painters of 18th and 19th century ships. Through his research for paintings he is a leading authority on naval history and ship architecture of the period and has a special interest in the ships of Lord Nelson. Where have we come across his works?
