The 98-gun ship 'Temeraire' played a distinguished role in Nelson's victory at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805, after which she was known as the 'Fighting Temeraire'. The painting was thought to represent the decline of Britain's naval power. Turner was in his sixties when he painted 'The Fighting Temeraire' and it shows his mastery of painting techniques to suggest sea and sky, thickly laying on paint to render the sun's rays striking the clouds. By contrast, the ship's rigging is meticulously painted creating an arresting and beautifully detailed cushion.
