Rear-Admiral Horatio Nelson, 1st Viscount Nelson (1758-1805)
A half-length sketch slightly to left in a rear-admiral's full dress uniform, 1795-1812. Nelson lost the sight of his right eye at the siege of Calvi in 1794 and the portrait shows that he has been carefully positioned so that his blind right eye, on the left, is in shadow. Contemporary accounts commented on the film that was known to cover the damaged eye. A lock of hair has been arranged over Nelson's forehead, to conceal the head wound that he sustained at the Battle of the Nile on 1 August 1798.
