Benjamin Wilson

Half-length portrait of John Smeaton seated at a writing table, dressed in a black coat, trousers and waistcoat, with a white shirt and neck-cloth. Smeaton wears a short brown wig and is posed with his left hand in his pocket, the right hand poised over a sheet of paper and holding a brass pen. Above and to the right as viewed are a curtain and architectural column. To the left as viewed, the Eddystone lighthouse with a ship on the horizon and a black smudge, possibly a signal rocket. John Smeaton was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1753.
