X-Ray of Captain the Honourable Augustus Keppel, 1725-1786
Painted as a tribute to Keppel in 1752-1753, on Reynolds's return from Europe, this picture made the artist's name in London and it remained in his studio for years where his patrons could see it. Keppel, as befits one of the most highly regarded of England's young naval commanders at the time, strides on a beach in a pose stylistically adopted by 18th century portrait painters to elevate the status of their sitters.
