Captain Frederick Cornewall (1706-1788)
A half-length portrait of Captain John Cooke wearing a captain's full-dress uniform, (over three years), 1795-1812. The artist has incorporated the sea into background of the portrait, to emphasize Cooke's naval achievements. He was captain of the 'Nymphe' when, together with the 'San Fiorenzo', they captured the French frigates, 'Resistance' and 'Constance' off Brest in March 1797. He was killed at Trafalgar when commanding the 'Bellerophon', being one of two captains to die there: the other was George Duff of the 'Mars'.
