Philip Affleck, Esq.r Rear Admiral of the White, Commander in Chief of His Majesty's Ships at Jamaica & the Bahama Islands.
Painted by Ed.d. Penny, R.A.
Engraved by Jn.o Young, Engraver in Mezzotinto to His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, Cockspur Street, London, 1792.
A very fine mezzotint. 350 x 500mm (13¾ x 19¾"), wide wide margins.
Philip Affleck (1726-1799), British admiral. A full-length portrait to left seated at a table. He wears a captain's uniform and a white wig and buckled shoes. His left hand is on his knee and his right rests on a chart on the table. Also on the table is a pair of dividers, a globe, a paper knife and a book. In the right background on the wall is a painting of a ship off the Cape of Good Hope. Affleck spent his early sea training in the service of the Honourable East India Company before transferring to the Royal Navy. He became a lieutenant rather late in 1755. Boscawen made him a commander during the taking of Louisbourg in 1758 and, after following the admiral to the Mediterranean, he was made a captain after the Battle of Lagos in the following year. In the War of American Independence, he commanded the 'Triumph', 74 guns, and fought at Rodney's two actions with de Guichen in 1780. After getting his flag in 1787, he went as commander-in-chief to the West Indies, 1790-93. On his return he became a Lord of the Admiralty until he retired in 1796.

London, Published Jan.y 1.st 1808, by the Engraver, No.65, Upper Charlotte Street Fitzroy Square.
Mezzotint. Plate 507 x 355mm. 20 x 14".
Charles James Fox (1749-1806), styled The Honourable from 1762, as a prominent British Whig statesman whose parliamentary career spanned thirty-eight years. Fox was the first foreign secretary of the United Kingdom and vocal supporter of American independence. Also known for his rivalry with William Pitt the Younger and a staunch opponent of George III he was reckless in politics as at the gaming tables. Fox held office briefly as a Tory under Lord North then led the opposition. Fox strongly criticised Lord North and the conduct of the American war, viewing the cause of the American patriots as a struggle for liberty against oppressive external power. He supported the revolutionaries of the United States, often dressing in the colours of George Washington's army. He championed America’s cause, denouncing taxation of Americans without their consent. Reform was a passion but as a supporter of the revolutionary cause in France, his credibility was diminished from 1792 by the excesses of the French revolutionaries.
