London, 1797. Mezzotint, 24 x 15 inches. Trimmed close but with no image loss. Good. Archival matting, and protected with Mylar sheet. Vernon was from a distinguished naval family. His final and most important command was as British naval chief in the East Indies during the American Revolution, when France was also at war with England in India. This portrait, produced three years after Vernon's death, shows him at the end of his life, standing, with warships in the background. (Inventory #: WRCAM10979)
