The Heroine of Trafalgar: The Fighting Temeraire (1839) Art. , Iconic. , Learning. , Painting. Oct 18, 2018 No Comments Always liked this painting by Turner. The heroine of Trafalgar, the Fighting Temeraire, is towed up the Thames to be broken up at Rotherhithe. No longer loved, she is being towed by steam tugs which illustrate how new technologies replace the old. Photo courtesy of National Gallery.
