Sir C Saunders

An oval bust-length portrait of Charles Saunders (c. 1713–1775) in flag officer’s full-dress uniform, 1767–87, with the ribbon and star of the Order of the Bath, raising his left arm. This portrait was engraved by Robert Shipster after Richard Brompton’s three-quarter-length portrait of 1772–3 (see BHC3011). The print was published by Robert Faulder in 1799 and also appeared as a frontispiece in John Charnock’s ‘Biographia Navalis; or, Impartial Memoirs of the Lives and Characters of Officers of the Navy of Great Britain, From the Year 1660 to the Present Time’ (London: R. Faulder, 1795), volume 3. Mounted on page with PAI2441–PAI2442, in album with PAI2280–PAI2439, PAI2441–PAI2464; Page 89. (Updated May 2019.)
