Wellington, sword in hand, falls from his horse, his white trousers crashing into a patch of cow-dung. He wears (in place of his field-marshal's cocked hat) a bearskin so enormous that it may well have overbalanced him. His horse stands beside him, pawing the ground. Behind (right) a group of mounted officers watch the accident.
