A solid long range fighter. 

Could be the same ship

I guess this is Sané's La Sybille (1790), a 18-pdr French frigate.

Excellent guess ... especially as the legend says "La Sybille" ... :D

Apparently, there is a contemporary French portrait of L'Égyptienne (specifications regarding armament as given by Wikipedia seem to differ from Boudriot's), attributed to "Jean-Jacques Baugean". But who is Jean-Jacques Baugean? I only know of Jean-Jérôme Baugean, and from him of nothing from before the 1er Premier Empire and the Restauration era ...:

I have the monograph, it's exceptional. Probably the most successful.
