Admiral Alexander Hood, 1st Viscount Bridport (1727-1814)
A three-quarter-length portrait to right, in captain's undress uniform (over three years) 1748-1767, and wearing his own hair. The sea is shown in the background with an action from 1761, depicting Hood recapturing the British ship, 'Warwick', from the French in the Mediterranean. This depiction of Hood states the authority and confidence of the sitter and combines a classical repose with contemporary naval dress.
