The death of Lord Nelson in the cockpit of the ship 'Victory'
The scene in the cockpit of 'Victory', 100 guns, during the Battle of Trafalgar, 21 October 1805. The narrative combines the portraiture of the principal figures with an enhanced history painting and shows Lord Nelson's dying moments. He lies propped on pillows, in profile, on the right of the picture, left side visible. His shirt is ripped open and he is draped in a white sheet. Figures are arranged around the death scene. On the right is Mr Burke the purser, in left side profile, seated in the foreground and supporting Nelson's pillows. Behind Nelson, in left profile, the head and shoulders of Dr Beatty, the senior surgeon on board the 'Victory', are visible with his right hand holding a handkerchief around the wound.
