Haynes Art Gallery, Toronto with them in 11/8/53 (1953) label to the frame


Published as a chromolithograph by Cassell and Co, London, in a smaller size: the image measuring 21 1/2" x 16 1/2", circa 1900. The image derives from the painting by George Joy, exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1883 under the longer title 'Thirty Years Before Trafalgar ...'. It depicts the 13-year-old Nelson - whose mother died when he was nine - dressed in his new midshipman's uniform and saying farewell to his grandmother on his first departure for sea in 1771.
