Admiral Lord George Brydges Rodney, 1st Baron Rodney (1719-1792)
A full length portrait to right in admiral's full dress uniform and wearing the ribbon and star of the Bath. His right hand is on an anchor fluke and his left clenched across his chest. His hair is probably his own. In the right background the artist has shown a scene from the battle of the Saints. The primary version of the portrait was painted for the Prince of Wales and exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1789 is now in the Royal Collection. This replica version was probably sold in auction in 1821 to King George III, having previously belonged to Reynolds's niece Lady Thomond. It may be the portrait that was in Reynolds's studio at his death.
