Captain Sir George Montagu (1750-1829)
A full-length portrait (probably cut down top and bottom) wearing a captain's undress uniform (over three years, 1774-1787) of frock coat and breeches. Facing left, Montagu stands in front of a tree to his left with the sea beyond, to his right. While in command of the 'Pearl', 32 guns, he captured the Spanish frigate 'Santa Monica', 28 guns, in 1779 and in the following year the large French privateer, 'EspÃ”Ã²Ã¡â”¬â•�rance', 32 guns. As a rear-admiral, he commanded the secondary squadron watching Rochefort in the campaign of the First of June, 1794 and was later commander-in-chief at Portsmouth, dying as Admiral of the Red.
