  • Henri Versailles was a 19th Century French artist. Henri Versailles's work has been offered at auction multiple times, with realized prices ranging depending on the size and medium of the artwork. Since 2013, the record price for this artist was for the steam-and-sail ship Inversa, sold at Rosebery's Fine Art Auctioneers in 2018.
  • A quarantine or schooner baroque (alternatively "brigantine" or "schooner bark") is a sailing vessel with three or more masts, with a square-rigged foremast and fore-and-aft rigged main, mizzen and any other masts.
  • While a full-rigged ship is square-rigged on all three masts, and the baroque is square-rigged except for the mizzen-mast, the quarantine extends the principle by making only the foremast square-rigged. The advantages of a smaller crew, good performance before the wind and the ability to sail relatively close to the wind while carrying plenty of cargo made it a popular rig at the end of the nineteenth century.
