Rear-Admiral Horatio Nelson, 1st Viscount Nelson (1758-1805)
A half-length portrait to left in a white bloodstained shirt, open at the neck. He wears the St Vincent medal on a white and blue ribbon around his neck. His left hand is across his chest. He wears a bloodstained white bandage around his head and there is blood on his right shoulder. His hair is brown tinged with white. In the left background is the Battle of the Nile with rigging on the right and the rail of a ship implied on the left. The painting represents the moment when the French flagship 'L'Orient' blew up. Nelson had received a severe wound in the head from a piece of langridge, rough metal fired as shot.
