The Moonlight Battle: the Battle off Cape St Vincent, 16 January 1780
This painting is an interpretation of the moment when the 'San Domingo' blew up. In the foreground, right of centre, is Rodney's flagship the 'Sandwich', 90 guns, in port-quarter view, flying the white ensign and Rodney flag as Admiral of the White at the main, with a red flag at the fore. Ahead of her is a large explosion with some of the 'San Domingo's' spars in mid-air. In the right background two British and two Spanish ships, in port-quarter view, are in a running fight. In the left foreground is a British two-decker, in starboard-quarter view, and in the background beyond are more ships in a running fight.
