Samuel Bough's The Dreadnought from Greenwich Stairs - Sun Sinking into Vapour is the flagship lot of Bloomsbury Auctions' Old Master to 20th Century Drawing, Watercolours and Prints sale, which will be held tomorrow (April 25) in London.
The painting depicts the last passage of HMS Dreadnought before it was broken up in 1857. With echoes of Turner's "Fighting Temeraire" - once voted Britain's favourite painting - the Bough work looks sure to meet its £15,000-25,000 ($22,899-30,519) estimate.
Also selling for £15,000-25,000 is a collection of 23 illustrations created by the Ukranian artist Andrey Avinoff for George V Golokhvastoff's poem The Fall of Atlantis.
