The Battle of the Nile, 1 August 1798
A depiction of a battle during the French Revolutionary War, 1793-1802. The painting shows the start of the action, at about 6.30 pm, looking north-west across Aboukir Bay, at sunset, from an elevated viewpoint to the south of the bay. Nelson's fleet, led by Captain Foley's 'Goliath', 74 guns, is shown in the process of doubling the head of the anchored French line, with the Aboukir fort beyond. The attack on the French centre is from seaward but the British ship 'Zealous', 74 guns, can be seen rounding the bows of the French 'Gueerier', 74 guns, at the head of the French line, to lead an attack on the enemy van division from the landward side.
