Nelson receiving the surrender of the 'San Josef'
The painting interprets the scene on the quarterdeck of the 'San Josef' as she surrenders. Nelson is standing centre right of the picture, his right hand held out to receive the sword of the captain of the ship. He is depicted offering it on bended knee, whilst his left hand points behind him to the slumped figure of the Spanish Admiral, Don Francisco Xavier Winthuysen, who has been mortally wounded. Kneeling beside the admiral on the far left is the 'San Josef's' First Lieutenant, with his hands clasped. Behind this group, a Spanish and English sailor are shown, the latter identifiable as Ramsay, one of Nelson's bargemen.
