Grocers' Livery Hall. Signed.

This is not the painting reproduced in Cockett, p.52
This is the painting reproduced in Cockett, p.52. Slightly unconvincing.
This painting seems rather too rococo for Monamy. I have yet to come across another canvas in which the clouds and smoke billow with this extravagant abandon, or in which the flags and sails are quite so curvaceous; nor does the palette seem right. Difficult to suggest another artist for attribution, however. 38 x 47.

Do these pictures represent the same "occasion"?
Do they portray the same yacht? Are they by the same hand?
