Captain the Honourable Samuel Barrington (1729-1800)
A half-length portrait to left, wearing flag officer's full-dress uniform 1767-1783, with wide lapels faced with white and embroidered with gold braid. He wears a grey wig or powdered hair and there is a background of sky. The sitter was third son of John Shute Barrington, 1st Viscount Barrington. He sat for Reynolds twice and at least six other copies were made by the artist from this portrait, for the officers who served in Barrington's flagship, 'Prince of Wales', 74 guns, at the taking of St Lucia in 1778.
