Scott Pierre Nicolas Legrand’s Apotheosis of Nelson, c. 1805–18. Nelson ascends into immortality as the Battle of Trafalgar rages in the background. He is supported by Neptune, whilst Fame holds a crown of stars as a symbol of immortality over Nelson’s head. A grieving Britannia holds out her arms, whilst Hercules, Mars, Minerva and Jupiter look on.
This is one of my favorites works of art.
