Art Open Thread: The Battle off Cape St. Vincent

I'm on the fourth book of the Aubrey-Maturin series, The Mauritius Command, and enjoying the entire series immensely. Accordingly, the Art Open Thread is inspired by my reading.

The moonlight Battle off Cape St Vincent, 16 January 1780 by Francis Holman, painted 1780, shows the Santo Domingo exploding, with Rodney's flagship Sandwich in the foreground.
