He continued for three years in the Indefatigable and in March 1799 followed Pellew to the Impétueux. In June 1800 Coghlan was put by Pellew in command of the cutter Viper, and while watching Port Louis proposed to cut out a French gun-vessel at the entrance of the harbour. Pellew lent him a ten-oared cutter, and in this, with eighteen men and a midshipman - Silas Hiscutt Paddon - on the night of 29 July, he boarded the gun-brig Cerbère and after a hard fight captured her 'within pistol-shot of three batteries, surrounded by several armed craft, and not a mile from a 74 bearing an admiral's flag, and two frigates' (E. Pellew, Despatch). Both Coghlan and Paddon received several severe wounds, six of Coghlan's men were wounded, and one was killed; but the Cerbère was taken and towed out under heavy fire from the batteries. The squadron, to mark their admiration, gave up the prize to the immediate captors; and Pellew, in his official letter to Lord St Vincent, emphasized the courage and skill 'which … effected so daring an enterprise' (ibid.). St Vincent, in forwarding Pellew's letter to the Admiralty, praised the achievement and in a letter to Pellew privately asked him to present to Coghlan a sword of 100 guineas' value. On St Vincent's representation, Coghlan, though he had served in the Navy for only four and a half years, was promoted lieutenant on 22 September 1800 and continued in command of the Viper until she was paid off in October 1801. In spring 1802 he was appointed to the cutter Nimble, and on 1 May 1804 was promoted to command the sloop Renard on the Jamaica station. On 20 March 1805 he brought to action the French privateer Général Ernouf, which, after an action of thirty-five minutes, was set on fire and blew up with the loss of upwards of a hundred men. In August 1807 Coghlan was moved into the brig Elk on the same station, and for nearly four years was senior officer of a light squadron for the protection of the Bahamas. He was promoted captain on 27 November 1810 but continued in the Elk until the following summer. In September 1812 Coghlan was appointed to the Caledonia as flag captain of Pellew, then commander-in-chief in the Mediterranean. At the end of 1813 he exchanged into the frigate Alcmène and continued in her until the end of the Napoleonic wars. On 4 June 1815 he was nominated a CB, and from 1826 to 1830 commanded the frigate Forte on the South American station. Coghlan married a daughter of Charles Hay of Jamaica, widow of Captain John Marshall RN; he had one son Sir William Marcus Coghlan (1803-1885).

<p>Subject to more than 30 years' research into its provenance and materials, this Renaissance painting of the Madonna and Child, believed to be by Raphael as the prototype for the Sistine Madonna, is now offered for sale by auction.</p> <h2>Evidence of its originality includes</h2> <ul> <li>Pentimenti - underdrawing - where the artist has experimented with the composition which would not appear on a copy.</li> <li>The blue coloration is a vegetable-derived dye <em>turnsole</em> (or similar organic indicator dye), known to be used only up to about 1600 for manuscript illumination, and not previously recorded in an oil painting.</li> <li>X-ray analysis shows pounce-marks exclusively across the knuckles and around the fingers of the Madonna's right hand and around the upper bicep of the Child. This indicates use of an auxiliary cartoon – a technique peculiar to Raphael.</li> <li>And its size (approx. 98 cm diameter) is consistent with the size of Raphael's known tondos</li> </ul> <h2>Important scientific and historical evidence includes</h2> <ul> <li> Analysis by eight independent laboratories, including Raman spectroscopic analysis by Professor Emeritus Howell Edwards, University of Bradford, which showed the yellow colour to be <em>massicot</em>, substantiated the date of the painting to pre-1700.</li> <li>The monogram on the reverse of the canvas substantiates that the picture was in the collection or possession of Queen Henrietta Maria (1609-69), wife of Charles I.</li> </ul> <p>The opinion of Professor Dr Jürg Meyer zur Capellen, scholar at the forefront of Raphael research, of the University of Münster and of the Raphael project jointly with Würzburg university, confirms:</p> <blockquote>"I believe it very likely that the tondo had once been in the collection or possession of Sir Richard Wynn of Gwydir coming from Queen Henrietta Maria, wife of Charles I. The painting might have had a certain significance in the catholic aims of Henrietta Maria, fostered by the Holy See. So it is possible that the painting was done in Rome for this purpose".</blockquote> <h2>Condition Report</h2> The painting is of a circular image within a square canvas. The canvas size is (height x width) 102.5 (+) x 103.7 - 104 cm. The horizontal diameter of the image is between 95.5 and 98 cm. and the vertical diameter is between 99 and 100 cm. The painted "frame", between the circle of the image and the square of the canvas, is loosely painted brown. The stretcher is of dressed wood and is constructed in a square with uniform diagonal battens across the corners. The stretcher is tensioned by wedges at the corners and the intersections. The canvas is secured to the stretcher by hand-made tin-tacks. Two areas of overpainting are clearly visible: the folds of the sleeve of the Madonna, and Her bodice. The overpainting is crude, especially on the sleeve where the brushwork is out of character with the rest of the painting. The fold is a stylised fold, without any unique detail which observation would have provided. Excerpt quotations as above from Dr Murdoch Lothian PhD thesis 'The Methods Employed to Provenance and to Attribute Putative Works by Raphael'. Liverpool University 1991 The painting was reframed and glazed at the National Conservation Centre, Liverpool 1, following conservation work on the painting undertaken at the Centre in the period January to May 2000.

A PARTIAL GERMAN SPAUDLER FOR THE LEFT SHOULDER, BY VALENTIN SIEBENBURGER, NUREMBERG, CIRCA 1535 formed of three lames overlapping outwards from the second, the first struck with the mark of its maker (defaced by a later hole), the quality-control mark of the City of Nuremberg and five dots indicating the position of the spaudler within its garniture, its main edge formed with a roped inward turn accompanied by a double recessed border of which the broader outer one is finely etched on a stippled and blackened ground with running foliage involving vine-leaves, and the centre of its second lame formed with a lenticular recess divided medially by a roped rib and etched to either side of it with a narrower version of its border-design 17.0 cm; 6¾ in Provenance The Marques of Breadalbane, Taymouth Castle, Scotland Gerald I. Mungeam, London Anthony. B. L. Dove, London Ian Eaves, London The spaudler was among a group of pieces that came to light in a tea-chest in an out-house of Taymouth Castle in the 1960s, having evidently been overlooked at the time of the dispersal of the collection of the Marquess of Breadalbane by Christie's on 20 May 1895 and 5 June 1917. The armour for man and horse of the Pfalzgraf Philipp in the Musée de Rennes, Brittany, possesses exactly the same kind of double borders, lenticular recesses and running-vine ornament as the spaudler (Alexander von Reitzenstein, 'Ein Harnisch Valentin Sibenbürgers in französischem Museumsbesitz', Waffen- und Kostûmkunde, Vol. 3, pt. 2, 1973, pp. 99-108). Other pieces showing these features can be recorded in the Musée de l'Armée, Paris, Inv.Nos. G. 314, G. 591, G.436-6 & G.568, and in the Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg. All bear the mark of Valentin Siebenburger (circa 1510-1564), the leading Nuremberg maker of his day. His house, opposite that of Albrecht Dûrer, is now a public house named 'Zum Geharnischten Mann".
