Admiral Sir Francis Geary (1709/10-1796)
A full-length portrait to right wearing flag officer's full-dress uniform, 1767-1783, a tie wig and holding his hat and cane in his right hand. A rear-admiral under Hawke in 1759, Geary had the misfortune to miss the Quiberon Bay action that November. In May 1780 he succeeded to the command of the Channel fleet on the death of Sir Charles Hardy, during a critical period of threatened French invasion, but was forced to give up the command for health reasons the following August. In this painting he stands on the battery at Portsmouth, with the fleet anchored in the left background including the 'Victory', 100 guns, as his flagship.
