The Battle of Trafalgar, 21 October 1805; sketch and plan for a painting of the dismasted 'Victory', for Lord Barham

Pencil drawing comprising a partial plan of the end of the Battle of Trafalgar at the top of the sheet (formerly folded) and a sketch for the related oil painting below, with the dismasted 'Victory' in the centre. Pocock's inscription 'Lord Barham 6 feet by 4', indicates that the painting was for the first Lord of Admiralty at the time of the battle. Barham (Sir Charles Middleton) had been recalled to the Admiralty earlier in 1805 to repair some of the damage caused by the ill-judged 'reforms' of his predecessor, St Vincent. That Nelson's fleet was adequately supplied in the months preceding Trafalgar was substantially due to Barham's well-proved administrative effectiveness, though his tenure was short since he retired in the change of government on Pitt's death in February 1806. Barham, born in 1726, turned 80 that year but lived to 1813, suggesting the period of this sketch and the related painting. [PvdM 9/08]
