A rare sailing painting of the Visit of Queen Victoria's visit to Cork Harbour by George Mounsey is to be auctioned at an Irish auction next Wednesday. The Woodward's auction will offer a number of items but the sailing art depicting the Queen and Prince Albert on board the royal yacht in August 1849 is one of few records of the event. It is estimated the painting will fetch between €20,000-30,000. With the probability of the first visit to Ireland by HRH Queen Elizabeth, the context of the above visit to Cork in 1849 is worth examining according to the auctioneer.
