L F Abbott

Born in 1760, Lemuel Francis Abbott was the son of a clergyman in Leicestershire. At the age of 14 he became the pupil of Frank Hayman, with whom he studied until he moved to London to continue painting portraits. He began exhibiting at the Academy in 1788 and continued to exhibit right through until 1800. Admiral Nelson sat for him several times and his half length portrait of Nelson hangs at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, together with a full length portrait of Admiral Sir Peter Parker. His portraits have been engraved by Valentine Green, Skelton and Walker. After his early successes, Abbott's reputation spread and he rapidly became overwhelmed with engagements. His overwork led to anxiety, insanity and, eventually, to his untimely death in 1803.

With her mizzen top already gone and her sails aloft having received severe punishment, Victory breaks through the line behind the French flagship Bucentaure, delivering a shattering broadside into her stern.  So severe was this opening fire that the Bucentaure was effectively put out of the rest of the battle, although Admiral Villeneuve himself was to miraculously survive the carnage.  Beyong Victory can be seen the French Redoubtable, which is receiving fire from Victorys starboard guns, and the Spanish San Leandro is in the extreme distance.  Most of Victorys stunsails have been cut away, but it was her stunsail booms that became entangled with the rigging of the Redoubtable when she put her helm to port and ran onto her.  Admiral Nelson fell shortly afterward, having received a fatal wound from a musket ball fired by a French sharpshooter in Redoubtables mizzen fighting top.  The Temeraire can be seen approaching the fray to the right.
