On display

A scene depicting the death of Lord Nelson on board a crowded ship. Nelson is wearing a blue uniform and lying in the centre of the ships deck. He is being supported by members of the crew who are wearing either red or blue uniforms. Other members of the crew are wounded or actively moving about the deck, and clouds of smoke can be seen in the background, as if they are still engaged in battle.
