"The Fighting Temeraire Tugged To Her Last Berth"
"The Fighting Temeraire Tugged To Her Last Berth, To Be Broken Up", 1838, by Joseph Mallord William (J. M. W.) Turner, RA.
Skyfall. Scene 10. Bond entered the National Art Gallery, London, to meet the new Q for the first time. He sat in Room 34, on a bench, studying a painting by Joseph Mallord William (J. M. W.) Turner, RA. "The Fighting Temeraire Tugged To Her Last Berth, To Be Broken Up", 1838. It has been considered one of England's greatest paintings. It depicts one of Britain's last tall ships which played a distinguished role in the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. The 98-gun ship, is being towed towards its final berth in East London to be broken up for scrap. Turner symbolized the demise of heroic strength, the "old" Age of Sail giving way to the Age of Steam and industrialism. Like the theme in Skyfall, the tall ship has performed great service for its country but is now being slated for scrap. As Turner contemplated his own mortality, so does Bond. M is also being forced into retirement.
