“Regalia combines a still life of antiquated and modern marine instruments with a view of the open sea. The sailor’s equipment is given almost royal status as the shapes subtly echo the regalia of sceptre, orb and chain. Wadsworth was fascinated by machinery and collected maritime equipment so that he could paint directly from it.
