Framed Print of Horatia Nelson (1801-81)
Large oval miniature of Horatia Nelson, in watercolour on ivory, in a gilt metal oval suspension frame. The back is also glazed and contains a second and more visually striking miniature by Holmes. This is of a brown-haired young woman with grey eyes, shown head and shoulders turned to her left but facing out to the viewer, against a slate-grey background. She wears a black dress with a white shawl neck and a broad black headband holding up her hair, and is most likely to be one of Horatia's cousins in the Matcham family (i.e. one of Nelson's nieces). Horatia is shown in long bust-length, facing the viewer but with her head and gaze turned to her right. She wears a high-waisted decollete white gown, with a cameo or similar pendant on the narrow blue belt of the waist, and a black choker. She has powdered curled hair bound with a white fillet on top and brown eyes. Horatia was Nelson's daughter by Emma, Lady Hamilton, conceived before they left Naples in 1800 and born in secret in January 1801. Despite Nelson's devotion to her, she barely knew him - since he was rarely in England after 1802 and she only lived with Emma after Sir William Hamilton's death in 1803. But while she learnt she was Nelson's daughter she never recognized (or admitted) that Emma was her mother, since the latter never revealed this. They remained together until Emma's death in alcoholic poverty at Calais in 1815, when Horatia returned to England and the care of Nelson's prosperously married youngest sister, Catherine Matcham, who had a large family
