JOHN HOPPNER (1758-1810)

Horatio, First Viscount Nelson (1758-1805)


RCIN 405901

At the heart of Carlton House George created an Admirals Room, to contain four full-length portraits of the naval heroes of the day. Nelson was accompanied by Admirals St Vincent, Keppel and Rodney. Hoppner portrays Nelson as a man of action in the midst of battle. This work may have inspired Lawrence when he came to work on the Waterloo portraits.

Commissioned in 1801; presented by Hoppner’s widow in 1810
