Nelson boarding a captured ship, 20th of November 1777
An incident during the American Revolutionary War, 1775-83. In 1777, Captain William Locker sailed to the West Indies station in the frigate Lowestoffe, 32 guns, with the young Horatio Nelson as his second lieutenant. They arrived at Port Royal, Jamaica, in July with a convoy of 18 sail of merchantmen. When the Lowestoffe captured an American merchant ship or privateer, on the 20th of November, a rough sea made the first lieutenant reluctant to try to board it and take formal possession. However Nelson volunteered for the task and succeeded in boarding the prize despite the heavy sea. The painting denotes the moment that Nelson leaves the Lowestoffe for the ship’s boat that will take him to the captured privateer. He is shown on the verge of the momentous departure, poised with one leg already firmly in the boat. In an exaggeratedly theatrical gesture, he bids farewell to Captain Locker and the other officers standing in the ship. Other figures crowd the deck in anticipation of the daring feat, their arms outstretched to hold the ropes and help steady the boat.
The Painted Garden of the Villa di Livia, Prima Porta, Rome
This lush painted garden covered the walls of a semi-subterranean chamber, probably a cool triclinium (dining room) for summer banquets, in the suburban villa of Livia Drusilla, the wife of the Emperor Augustus.
This Second style fresco, the most ancient example of continuous garden painting (30 - 20 BC), presents a variety of plants and birds rendered in a naturalistic way.
