The painting depicts the 98-gun HMS Temeraire, one of the last second-rateships of the line to have played a role in the Battle of Trafalgar, being towed up the Thames by a paddle-wheel steam tug in 1838, towards its final berth in Rotherhithe to be broken up for scrap.

The painting currently hangs in the National Gallery, London, having been bequeathed to the nation by the artist in 1851, as part of the Turner Bequest
