Horatio Nelson drawn by Cuthbert Collingwood when both were serving in the West Indies
Nelson and Collingwood exchanged portraits when, as young captains and probably in late 1784, they met on Antigua at Commissioner Moutray's house. Mrs Mary Moutray later recalled, 'Nelson had lost his hair from fever, and its place had been so grotesquely supplied by the art of the West Indian perruquier, that Captain Collingwood said to him one day, 'I must draw you, Nelson, in that wig.' He accordingly made a coloured drawing which bears much resemblance to the later pictures of the hero'. For Nelson's drawing of Collingwood see PAJ3941.
