Reverend Edmund Nelson (1693-1747)

A half-length portrait facing right, wearing clerical bands and a plain black coat. The sitter was Rector of Burnham Thorpe, Norfolk, and the father of Admiral Lord Nelson. This portrait was painted at the request of Lady Nelson during the sitter's last visits to her in London. The artist made it a rule that all his sitters except the king and royal family should come to him for their portraits to be painted. He broke the rule on this occasion in honour of Nelson and out of deference to the age of the sitter.
Sir William Beechey
