A Portrait of Lord Nelson Peter Warwick Tuesday 17 October 2017

Horatio Nelson sat for more artists and sculptors than most famous people, other than royalty. Their works tell his life’s story and reveal a man of many parts and moods that reflect on his public and private life, including the ménage a trois with Sir William and Lady Hamilton. The lecture asks, who was the real Nelson?
