1935This is the unique original Pencil drawing by Leslie Ashwell Wood.
A beautiful cut-away drawing by the master of cutaways himself, Leslie Ashwell Wood.
The drawing shows intricate workings and the meticulous details of Nelson's aptly named Flagship H.M.S. Victory, the most famous battleship in naval history.
This drawing first appeared in finished black and white form in the early British magazine published by The Amalgamated Press entitled 'The Romance of The Nation- A Stirring Pageant of the British Peoples Through All the Ages, and was subsequently published in coloured form in 1957 as the centre fold cutaway in the famous British comic 'Eagle' (Please see additional photos)
Drawn in pencil on what appears to be a double page spread from the artist's sketchbook measuring 485 x 305 mm
