A half-length portrait facing left in rear-admiral's undress uniform, 1795-1812, with the St Vincent medal and the star of a Knight of the Bath. The empty right sleeve is pinned across with the upper part slit and tied with ribbons to accommodate the wound dressing following the loss of Nelson's right arm at Santa Cruz, Tenerife, in July 1797. This is a late, loosely executed copy of one of Abbott's many portraits of this type; see for example BHC2888 and BHC2889. A ship is implied in the distance on the left.
