This striking lithograph was reproduced after a painting by Raoul Dufy from 1935 "d'apres Constantin Guys". Guys was a Dutch-born French Crimean War correspondent, water color painter and illustrator for British and French newspapers and Dufy paid homage to Guys whose work he admired.
The scene represents Prince de Joinville (1818–1900), the third son of King Louis-Philippe I of France who was admiral in the French navy, embarking on an English ship. It may represent the prince's 1843 trip to England, when he traveled with his new wife Princess Francisca of Brazil to meet Queen Victoria.
The painting was owned by famous Art Collector and textile industrialist Pierre Levy. Later, it was acquired by French movie director Gerard Oury.
