After John de Vaere’s profile portrait of 1798 for Wedgwood. Depicted in admiral’s full dress uniform with decorations, hair en queue. Framed and glazed in period ebonised frame with hanging loop.

John de Vaere (1755-1830) was born in France and settled in England sometime prior to 1786 when he enrolled as a student at the Royal Academy Schools. The following year he departed for Rome, where his talents earned him the Pope's Silver Medal for Sculpture and a place as assistant to the English Neo-classical sculptor John Flaxman. Upon his return to England in 1790, he worked for Josiah Wedgewood until his death in 1795.
