Horatia Nelson (1801-1881)
A full-length portrait full face wearing a white dress, red pumps and wearing a miniature of her father round her neck. She is dancing in a rocky foreground with an imaginary landscape in the distance, a tambourine held high in her left hand and her gaze directly engaging the viewer. It is possible that the portrait was commissioned by Horatia's mother, Emma, since the pose closely relates to a 1792 portrait of her by the French painter, Elisabeth-Louise Vigee Le Brun. This showed Emma as a Bacchante, in which she also dances holding a tambourine, with the smoke from Mount Vesuvius rising in the background. The painting is part of the Nelson-Ward Collection, acquired directly from Horatia's family.
