"Dido In Despair"[1] by James Gillray.

"Gillray alludes to the circumstances of the life and character of Nelson's mistress Lady Hamilton and to the antiquarian pursuits of her husband. She was reported to have modelled for the positions depicted in the volume Lady Hamilton's Attitudes, which Gillray lampoons in her evocation of despair."[2]
