Admiral Lord Hood

A half-length portrait of Samuel Hood (1724–1816) in admiral’s undress uniform, 1767–87, holding a letter in his right hand and leaning on a rock. Lettered underneath the image with the title and the publication details: ‘Admiral Lord Hood, From an Original Picture of Sir Joshua Reynolds. / W. Greatbatch sc. / London, Richard Bentley & Son, 1878.’ This portrait was engraved by William Greatbatch after an oil painting by Joshua Reynolds, probably painted in 1783, now in the collection of Manchester City Art Galleries. The print was published by Richard Bentley & Son in 1878. Reynolds’s painting was first engraved by John Jones in 1783 (see PAG9333). (Updated May 2019.)
