A full-length portrait of Nelson's daughter, full-face, wearing a white dress, red pumps and a miniature of her father round her neck. She is dancing in a rocky foreground with an imaginary landscape in the distance, a tambourine held high in her left hand and her gaze directly engaging the viewer. The coastal scene with mountains and smoke from a volcano on the right, may be intended to represent the Bay of Naples by an artist who had never visited it. This painting is part of the Nelson-Ward Collection, presented to the National Maritime Museum by Horatia's grandson the Revd Hugh Nelson-Ward in 1946.

Artist: British School, 19th century

Date: circa 1815
