This work by noted British painter J.M.W. Turner combines several events from different points in the battle. In the foreground, HMS Victory displays Nelson’s famous signal “England expects that every man will do his duty,” though that message was taken down once the battle commenced. In the background, HMS Achille is on fire, an event that occurred later in the afternoon. HMS Redoutable is shown sinking in the foreground, but that did not occur until the following day.
