Derby worked in London from 1808 painting miniatures, portraits in oil and some small watercolour copies such as this example. The original portrait by Reynolds, now in the National Maritime Museum was executed in 1763. Hood commanded the Minerva at Quiberon Bay in 1759. In 1778 he commanded the Robust, in Palliser’s division of the fleet at Ushant. He commanded a division of Howe’s fleet at the relief of Gibraltar in 1782. The action in the background shows the sitter’s elevated status and aristocratic bearing even in the midst of war.
