This sumptuous portrait of the Dutch naval officer Admiral Cornelius Tromp (1629–1691) holding his naval gun and baton of command, was commissioned from a Dutch artist living in England by Ambrose Elton of Clevedon Court (a property in the care of the National Trust), 'in memory of theire great Intimacie of acquaintance'. He sat for both Borsselaer, in 1675, and Sir Peter Lely, in the same year Charles II gave him a baronetcy, which the portrait may have been painted to commemorate.
