"The Forgotten Hero- Trafalgar" by David Aldus (now sold)


"The Forgotten Hero- Trafalgar" by David Aldus (now sold)

£12500.00

MAGNIFICENT ENORMOUS HIGH PRESTIGE EXHIBITION STANDARD OIL PAINTING "The Forgotten Hero -Trafalgar".  BY THE FABULOUS ARTIST DAVID ALDUS. This truly incredible painting capturing the romantic story of Collingwood the forgotten Hero at the Battle of Trafalgar!!

forgotten hero 1

This beautiful classic painting capturing a terrifying historic moment at the infamous battle of Trafalgar 1805.


 

Collingwood is seen pictured in the centre of the painting, surrounded,  on the Royal Sovereign.

 

forgotten hero 2

Collingwood can be seen on the deck!!

 

 

Collingwood fought alongside Nelson but his incredible role in the battle is now almost forgotten. Collingwood with the Royal Sovereign was the first ship to engage the enormous French and Spanish fleet  at Trafalgar. The Royal Sovereign had a newly fitted copper hull which made it the swiftest ship in the English fleet. Collingwood single handedly engaged the enemy fleet some twenty minutes before any other English ship. He found himself surrounded by French ships and Nelson said of him “See how that noble fellow Collingwood carries his ship into action.” Collingwood remarked back to his captain “What would Nelson give to be here!”

forgotten hero 3

 

 

 


 

 The ship to the left is HMS Belleisle which has come to assist the Royal Sovereign. Captain William Hargood is seen saluting Collingwood. The Belleisle has lost its main sails in battle fighting its way through to Collingwood and is in the process of hoisting a temporary Jury Rig. The Belleisle, like the Fighting Temeraire, was a captured French ship formally called the Formidable. The Belleisle suffered 33 dead and 93 wounded in this miraculous rescue of the Royal Sovereign.


 

 

 

 

 

Some macabre details of ship warfare are present in this painting and were used extensively during battles between wooden ships. It can be seen that the Victory has red tarpaulin edging their decks. This was supposedly used to protect snipers standing on deck, but it's main, undisclosed reason was to conceal the blood of those who were killed - sometimes numbered in their hundreds. Exactly the same ploy has been used mid-decks.



forgotten hero 4

The interior walls would be painted red and, as can be seen, the inner sides of the portals were also painted red!!!! Other facts from the battle- No english ship was lost, Nelson's ships were veritable killing machines. Unlike other navies Nelson's ships were feared as they would fire as the ships dipped so firing into enemy ship's hulls killing all. Other Navys would aim at ships sails to disable them. The bow of the Victory is not how you can see it today at Portsmouth as the ship was badly damaged at Trafalgar so has since been repaired with the bow as it exists today !!!
