Admiral Sir Edward Hawke, 1705-1781, 1st Baron Hawke
A three-quarter-length portrait showing the sitter slightly to the right. He wears flag-officer's undress uniform, 1767-83, of blue jacket and gold braid with the ribbon and star of the Order of Bath and a tie-wig. He holds his sword in his right hand and stands against a rocky background with, on the left, the fleet at anchor together with a barge flying the Union flag.
Hawke is best known for his defeat of the French fleet in Quiberon Bay in November 1759 - an extremely hazardous action fought close in on a rocky coast, in the fading light of a November evening.
