The Battle of Trafalgar is Romantic oil on canvas painting, created by Joseph Mallord William Turner; it was painted between 1822 and 1824. Joseph Mallord William Turner is thought to have drawn his inspiration by delving into studies on Admiral Nelson and sketches by fellow painter J.C. Shetky.
Turner made close observation of the ships shown here, the painting of the battle in which Admiral Nelson died. Sails and cannon smoke arrest the eye, creating a claustrophobic backdrop, while the action appears to thrust outwards.
JWS, inspired by both the chaos of battle and the intimate tragedy of Nelson’s final moments crafted this masterpiece for classy men who know the importance of looking good at the club or anywhere else.
