The Fighting Temeraire depicts one of the last 98-gun HMS Temeraire being towed positioned on the left side of the painting and raised against an almost ghostly and warm background and a triangle of blue sky.

This piece represents the patriotic side of William Turner, who was at the height of his career having already exhibited at the Royal Academy in London when he presented the painting. He was known for his atmospheric paintings where he explored the subjects of the weather, sea, and light.
