A large and beautifully executed early 20th century English School portrait of Horatio, Viscount Lord Nelson. Oil on canvas, framed. Ready to hang.

In this portrait, Nelson wears a rear-admiral's uniform of 1795-1812 pattern, with gold epaulettes and the Nile decorations. His hat features the distinctive diamond chelengk given to him by the Sultan of Turkey. On his jacket he wears the star of a Knight of the Bath, granted to him on 27 September 1797, together with the Neapolitan Order of St Ferdinand and of Merit, and the Turkish Order of the Crescent.

Admiral Nelson is one of the best known officers of the British Navy. His inspirational leadership, grasp of strategy, and unconventional tactics brought about a number of decisive British naval victories, particularly during the Napoleonic Wars. He was wounded in combat, losing sight in one eye in Corsica at the age of 35, and most of one arm in an attempt to conquer Santa Cruz de Tenerife when he was 38. He was fatally shot during his victory at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.

I purchased some lovely medical engravings from this vendor, and the experience was excellent. Alexandra communicated promptly, held several items for me while I made a final decision on which to purchase, and provided a shipping option that was secure and well priced. I would happily purchase from here again.
