A half-length portrait facing to right of Edward Pellew, 1st Viscount Exmouth (1757–1833) in captain’s full-dress uniform, 1795–1812, with the ribbon and star of the Order of the Bath and the cross of the Sardinian Order of Saints Maurice and Lazarus on a ribbon around his neck. Lettered beneath the image ‘Admiral Viscount Exmouth. OB. 1833. / Lawrence Pinx.’ This print was published in the 1849 edition of Edmund Lodge’s ‘Portraits of Illustrious Personages of Great Britain’ (London: Henry G. Bohn, 1850), volume 8.The portrait is after Thomas Lawrence’s oil painting of around 1797, which is now in the collection of the National Maritime Museum (see ZBA0434). Lawrence’s painting did not originally include the regalia of the Order of the Bath, to which the sitter was appointed in January 1815. The star of the Bath was subsequently added to Lawrence’s painting. In this print, both the star and the ribbon of the Bath have been added. (Updated May 2019.)
