Lord Keppel &c. First Lord Commisr of the Admiralty

An oval bust-length of Augustus Keppel (1725–1786) in profile to right, wearing flag officers’ full dress uniform, 1767–87. The portrait is surrounded by a thick oval frame, which is lettered with the sitter’s name, ‘The Honble. Admiral Keppel.’ The print is also lettered beneath the image with the title, production details and publication line: ‘Lord Keppel &c. / First Lord Commisr. Of the Admiralty. / Modelled from the Life by Tassie. / Engraved by J. Caldwall.’ This portrait was engraved and published by James Caldwall after James Tassie’s medallion of 1779 (see OBJ0574). The print was published by Caldwall on 13 April 1782. It is a later reprint, with an additional title, of the plate first published on 3 April 1779 (see PAD2929). (Updated May 2019.)
