Captain John Harvey (1740-1794)
A half-length portrait to right, wearing captains, over three years, full-dress uniform, 1774-1787, in an oval painted frame. He wears his own hair and faces the front to meet the gaze of the viewer. Harvey joined the Navy at the age of 15 and in 1794, at the beginning of the French Revolutionary War, 1793-1802, he was captain of the 'Brunswick', 74 guns. She was part of Lord Howe's fleet in the campaign leading up to the Battle of 1 June 1794, in which she was directly astern of Howe's flagship, 'Queen Charlotte'. Harvey was mortally wounded in the action and died shortly afterwards.
