Gordon Frickers by invitation created a one man show of 35 paintings (May 2011) at the European Parliament, Brussels, an impressive addition to his list of exhibitions in other prestigious venues in Britain and Europe.

Historical inaccuracy abounds; paintings here are as one of my followers put it, “you get an intimate front row seat to history” and is in most instances, as near truth and as near ‘documentary’, as meticulous, diligent research and real artistry can get.

The Hermione frégate rendered distinguished service, becoming famous for a number of reasons.

Hermione and the American War of Independence:

L’Hermione frégate, the painting is a careful a study of the original frégate Hermione, the painting being intended to compliment the magnificent replica frigate built at Rochefort sur mere, launched 2014.

Hermione frégate is shown here in company with the fleet of the Marquis de Lafayette en route to support the Americans with their war for Independence.

Frigates were fast and relatively manoeuvrable, frigates were single main gun deck ships. The Hermione frégate was intended for independent patrols, scouting, a courier and to be the eyes of a fleet.

A young captain’s dream ship offering independent command, fame and prize money.

The Marquis de Lafayette personally transferred to the Hermione frégate during the American War of Independence.

The new Hermione is built for adventure on the high seas.

Captain Yann Cariou, an ex-naval officer in command of the replica launched 2014, said “Above all there will be emotion. It’s still the Hermione and nobody has navigated a ship like this for two centuries“.
