Captain James Cook (1728-1779)
A head-and-shoulders portrait to left in captain's undress uniform, 1774-83. Cook returned from his second Pacific voyage in the rank of Commander on 30 July 1775 and was promoted to Captain on 9 August. This portrait may therefore have been executed by Hodges during the return journey and the uniform finished back in England, or it may all have been done in England before Cook departed on his last voyage on 12 July 1776.
