"Robert Cleveley is not known to have been at the Battle of the First of June. However, it is clear from Joseph Farington, the artist and diarist, that within two months of the battle, he was working on designs for engravings to be published by the publisher de Poggi the following year. The result was two very large pictures of which de Poggi opened an exhibition at his Bond Street gallery on 21 February 1795, promoting the sale of large subscription prints from them by B. T. Pouncy (PAI5711), issued in August 1795, and Thomas Medland (PAI5709), issued in February 1796."--Online catalog of the National Maritime Museum.
