Sir Anthony Deane (circa 1638-1721)

A half-length portrait to left in a brown coat and dark full-bottomed wig. The sitter was a naval architect and shipwright. He was a close friend of Samuel Pepys when he was Secretary to the Navy Board, dedicated his manuscript of 'The Doctrine of Naval Architecture to Pepys' in 1663 and, through his influence, became Master Shipwright at Harwich in 1664. In 1666 Pepys observed that Deane was 'the first that hath come to any certainty beforehand of foretelling the draught of water of a ship before she be launched'. Deane was Master Shipwright at Portsmouth in 1668, Comptroller of Victualling in 1676 and Commissioner of the Navy for general business between 1680 and 1688.
