John Adams, alias John Wilkinson, Greenwich Pensioner boatswain's mate of the 'Agamemnon'
This is one of two versions of this portrait of the former boatswain's mate (1793-96) of Nelson's 'Agamemnon', the other larger watercolour (Greenwich Hospital Collection) being PAH3992. That shows the full figure and the sitter with a rather defeated expression. The sharper truculence here perhaps more accurately reflects his unwillingness to sit for Cruikshank at which the artist's related letter (see below) seems to hint.
