A full-length portrait facing to right in a white dress and drawers, red pumps and a cross on a necklace which is probably made of coral. Horatia is shown on bended right knee at the (imaginary) tomb of her father, Nelson, on the right, with the letters ‘NELS’ and ‘TRAF’ clearly inscribed on it. A curtain is draped on the left to enhance the dramatic effect. This is one of two versions of this subject, the other being by Isaac Pocock who exhibited his at the Royal Academy in 1807.
