A three-quarter length portrait, facing to the left, in admiral’s full dress uniform, of Edward Pellew, first Viscount Exmouth. His hands are resting on his sword. He wears the ribbon and star of the GCB and the star of St Ferdinand and Merit. This painting was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1819. His success as a frigate captain brought him to a responsible position in the Channel Fleet in the early years of the French Revolutionary Wars.
