Episode after Trafalgar (sketch)

Ca. 1862. Oil on canvas.
Room 075

This is the sketch for the artist’s foremost painting, shown in this room. The importance of French models in his work is appreciable, particularly the influence of Thomas Couture, under whom he trained in Paris, and his procedure of privileging masses of colour over the definition of outline. Other clear influences are Géricault and Delacroix.
