Set against a stormy cloud backdrop, this experienced naval officer, traditionally known as George Powell, is shown wearing a navy coat with gold-edged white facings and a tied cravat. His powdered wig is tied in a queue with a narrow ribbon.
Dating to the 1780s, the portrait is set in the original gold frame enclosed on the reverse and with a watch top hanger.
