The Victory’s quarterdeck is seen here from the same angle as in Turner’s picture The Battle of Trafalgar, as Seen from the Mizen Starboard Shrouds of the Victory, exhibited at Turner’s Gallery in 1806 (Tate N00480;1 see the Introduction to this sketchbook). The beakhead appears again on folio 31 (D05478; Turner Bequest LXXXIX 24), identified as the Temeraire by Pieter van der Merwe.
