Vice-Admiral George Darby (circa 1720-1790)
A full-length portrait wearing flag officer's undress uniform, 1774-1783, although the button-holes are shown grouped in threes as worn by Vice-Admirals, 1783-1787. He wears a white wig, his right hand rests on a telescope and he holds his hat in his left hand. His sword is also visible by his left side. In the left background is a depiction of the relief of Gibraltar in 1781. The portrait was begun in 1783 and may not have been finished until 1786 and Darby certainly sat to Romney in 1783, 1784 and 1786.
