    The discovery of a hidden signature on a number of paintings led to the identification of Francis Hustwick and the establishment of his oeuvre from a collection of unattributed canvases. This illustrated examination of 50 pictures, mostly made in the vicinity of the port of Liverpool in the mid-19th century, explains how Hustwick's 'rebus' - an anachronistic red ensign - was recognized, and the subsequent detective work that brought to light the career of the previously obscure painter.
