The Battle of the Nile (also known as the Battle of Aboukir Bay, was a major naval battle fought between British and French fleets at Aboukir Bay on the Mediterranean coast of Egypt from 1–3 August 1798. The battle was the climax of a naval campaign that had ranged across the Mediterranean during the previous three months, as a large French convoy sailed from Toulon to Alexandria carrying an expeditionary force under General Napoleon Bonaparte. Bonaparte sought to invade Egypt as the first step in a campaign against British India in an effort to drive Britain out of the French Revolutionary Wars. As Bonaparte’s fleet crossed the Mediterranean, it was pursued by a British force under Rear-Admiral Sir Horatio Nelson.

This painting is an interpretation of the battle by the now deceased Jack Stafford and it probably one of his largest and finest works,. Stafford was a well known  historical seascape artist and his contributions will be sincearly missed by all at Kings Galleries.
