William Hogarth
Captain Lord George Graham in his Cabin,1745
Oil on canvas.
National Maritime Museum, London

The painting was commissioned by Graham to commemorate one of his naval battles. It features Graham along side the ship’s clerk and chaplain, and two servants, one of which plays the pipe and tabor. The relaxed ambiance of the painting contrasts heavily with the other works on naval subjects.
