Product description:

Lahaina Printsellers recreates the beauty of our local artist’s designs, in the form of a Giclée. All of our prints are printed on premium cotton canvas using archival inks from HP. We then coat the canvas with a trade secret mixture and seal the art for a lifetime. Everything is produced locally in Maui at our production studio. If you are a condo owner or just want to renovate your home, please contact us and we will work with you to produce exactly what you envision your condo or home to be. All of our Giclées have a set size on our website, but if they do not match your vision, please contact us and we will determine if the piece can be printed in your desired size. We also offer gallery wraps. If you are interested please contact us and we will give you a custom quote, honoring all web specials available to you. We also have an extensive collection of original art work of what you see on our website, so please contact us if you are interested in the original.  Our Hawaiian local art, photography and antique Hawaiian maps are a collection accumulated over the course of 40 years and we invite you to share our collection in your Condo and/or Maui home.

HMS Agamemnon was a 64-gun third-rate ship of the line of the Royal Navy. She saw service in the American Revolution, French Revolution and Napoleonic Wars, and fought in many of the major naval battles of those conflicts.

She was named after King Agamemnon, a prominent figure in ancient Greek mythology who participated in the Siege of Troy, and was the first Royal Navy vessel to bear the name.

Lord Horatio Nelson regarded her as his favorite ship, and to her crew she was known by the affectionate nickname "Eggs and Bacon." According to an article in The Gentleman's Magazine, her crew renamed her as they did not like the classical names that were in vogue at the Admiralty during this period.

In this view, artist Doug Fine gives his inspired take on this magnificent ship.
