Nelson boarding the 'San Josef' at the Battle of Cape St Vincent, 14 February 1797
The painting interprets the dramatic climax when Nelson arrives, right centre, on the quarter-deck of the 'San Josef'. He is closely followed by Captain Berry, who points his pistol at the Spanish sailor about to attack Nelson. On his right a British sailor, cutlass in hand, echoes Nelson's pose. Nelson is positioned right of centre, striking a dramatic pose and with a brilliance that eclipses the rest. Figures in the rigging heighten the sense of urgency and agitation, while the figures of the fallen underscore the cost of battle.
