    Augustus Earle Exhibition : Tristan da Cunha - Earle was stranded there in March 1824 when his ship, the Duke of Gloucester, inexplicably set sail without him. (Many of his South American watercolours presumably disappeared at that time as well.)

He subsequently described the eight-month ordeal in a letter to a Hobart newspaper and published a lengthier account after his arrival back in England.
