'Trafalgar' under the Upper Barracca, Malta, 27 March 1852

Inscribed top left, 'Trafalgar- Malta- / March 27th 52', this is a detailed hull study of the ship's hull from ahead just off the starboard bow, as she lies at anchor (chain cable) under the Upper Barracca, Valletta, which is lightly sketched in in pencil behind. The gunports are open with the guns run out, and a boat boom is rigged from the starboard side with a boat under it and a dghaisa alongside further aft; another boat hangs outboard on davits. Apart from figures in the two boats on the water there is no other staffage and though the lower masts are indicated there has been no attempt to add yards or rigging. The ship's reflection in the water is well achieved and its figurehead - a bust of Nelson in uniform, including the sash of the Order of the Bath, and a hat - is almost self-identifying in terms of detailing.
