'The Fighting Temeraire', 1839. Artist: JMW Turner
'The Fighting Temeraire', 1839. The 98-gun ship 'Temeraire' became known as the 'Fighting Temeraire' after its role in Nelson's victory at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. The ship remained in service until 1838 when she was decommissioned. The painting was thought to represent the decline of Britain's naval power. The 'Temeraire' is shown travelling east, away from the sunset, to evoke a sense of loss. Original work found in The National Gallery Collection.
