    The Destruction of the 1715 Fleet in Artwork

    I often wonder what the "Treasure Coast" was like in the immediate aftermath of the destruction of the 1715 Fleet? It must have been both God aweful and incredible. Several paintings are out there depicting such scenes and three in particular I feel really capture the essense of the moment. I have been fortunate beyond words to have all three artists give me permission to use their work as cover art for a few books. "The Day After" by Ralph Curnow was used on the cover of Finding the Fleet. More recently the equally beautiful artwork of James A. Flood and John Redman was used for Finding the Fleet II and Finding the Fleet III.
    It really must have been a memorable sight to see broken galleons, cargo, treasure and dead bodies strewn up and down the beaches.

    "The Day After" by Ralph Curnow features the wreckage and destruction of the 1715 Fleet as a result of the hurricane on July 31, 1715. It was used courtesy of the 1715 Fleet Society as the cover artwork for Finding the Fleet published in 2015.

    "Spanish Flagship After the Storm" by James A. Flood. In this painting the Nuestra Senora del Carmen y San Antonio, formerly HMS Hampton Court, is depicted days after the storm of 1715, gounded on the east coast of Florida, the only one from the Spanish Treasure Fleet to beach relatively intact. Dignataries from Cuba have gathered to develop a plan to salvage what they can from the wreckage. The painting is used as the cover artwork for Finding the Fleet II. (More of Mr. Flood's beautiful artwork appears inside the book).

    And last but certainly not least, "San Roman Wreck" by John Redman. I think perhaps this may be my personal favorite of the bunch. The painting is used as the cover artwork for Finding the Fleet III. (More of Mr.Redman's beautiful artwork also appears inside the book)

    I don't know why they appear washed out on this site, but the colors are vibrant on the prints themselves.

    I used the "Trinity" as a model for this...either the Marigalera or the "EL CIERVO" a Galera or an aviso. I will bow to your extensive knowledge if you would please offer advice.

    I am pretty sure they had no galeasses there. The only time galeasses were used in the Caribbean was during late 16th, early 17th century. And the experience was so appaling, the Spanish never used them again.

    I would bet my money that in 1715 all those ships were not oared.

    An 18th century "galera" would be like a barkentine today (or a fully rigged ship, if we would be talking about a late 18th or early/late 19th century "galera") and an "aviso" would be like a 19th century schooner/sloop

    Finally... something we agree on.
