Admiral Henry John Chetwynd, 18th Earl of Shrewsbury (1803-1868)
A head and shoulders, facing to the right in profile, wearing a brown coat against a pastoral background. Watts has achieved a portrait that is both intimate and melancholy, reflecting the sitter's retreat from public life. No longer a serving officer he is shown as a private man in a distinctly brooding landscape. Chetwynd entered the navy in 1817 and fought at the Battle of Navarino in 1827, for which he received the CB and other decorations. He was promoted to captain and later naval ADC to Queen Victoria.
