July 1798.  Rear Admiral Sir Horatio Nelson in his flagship HMS Vanguard leads the combined naval force in search of the elusive 350-strong French fleet transporting Napoleon's army for the invasion of Egypt. 
 
On 1 August, Nelson finally located the enemy in Aboukir Bay, and the ensuing battle, which lasted into the night, resulted in the final defeat of most of the French fleet. 

The 74-gun Vanguard was launched in 1787 and survived in various roles, (a powder hulk in 1814) and was finally broken up in 1821.  The 74-gun ships were the battlecruisers of their day, able to tackle a three-decker or chase a frigate.  Individual captains had a certain leeway over the hull colouring of their ships, and the Vanguard's hull is as replicated at the time..
 
The original 26 x 40 painting was sold by Art Marine to an English collector in 2020.
