An interpretation of Admiral Duncan receiving the surrender of the Dutch Admiral de Winter, following the Battle of Camperdown, painted 30 years after the event. Admiral Duncan countered the threat of French invasion when he defeated the Dutch fleet at Camperdown in 1797. The painting shows the quarter-deck of the Duncan's flagship, 'Venerable', viewed from the port side, with Duncan, de Winter and Captain Fairfax of the 'Venerable' standing in the centre. Duncan is on the right facing left, in full-dress uniform with the sash and star of the Order of the Bath. He holds his hat in his left hand and his right hand prepares to receive de Winter's sword.
