Société Jersiaise
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.

The close relationship between A, B, and C is examined here.

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