Monamy, Peter. "English marine painter, one of the first English imitators of the van de Veldes.
His work, which is meticulous and has little variety, is well represented in the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich."
Oxford Dictionary of Art
hope & glory
P.Monamy, "...was born in Jersey, and certainly from his circumstances, or the views of his family, had little reason to expect the fame he afterwards acquired .... But when nature gives real talents, they break forth in the homeliest school. The shallow waves that rolled under his window ..... fitted him to imitate the turbulence of the ocean."
Lord Orford's Works, 1798
