A three-quarter-length portrait to the right in captain's full-dress uniform, over three years' seniority, 1774–1787. Although the portrait was begun in 1777, when Nelson was a lieutenant, it was not finished until at least 1781 when he had returned to England as a captain and possibly later, given that over-three-years uniform would only have been appropriate from mid-1782, when he was again out of England.
