Framed Print of Lieutenant-General The Honourable Robert Monckton

Major-General (later Lieutenant-General) The Honourable Robert Monckton (1726-1782), at the Taking of Martinique, 1762.Oil on canvas by Benjamin West (1738-1820), 1763/4 (c), exhibited at the Society of Artists 1764.Listed in 1762 as a major-general (he later became a lieutenant-general), Monckton is wearing a general officer's frock coat: the single-spaced buttons and loops were later to be used to denote full generals.

West went on to receive royal patronage and, in 1792, succeeded Sir Joshua Reynolds as President of the Royal Academy. In its day, his most famous painting, 'The Death of General Wolfe', (National Galleries of Canada), was innovative for treating a contemporary subject as a formal, academic 'history painting', with the principals dressed in their own clothes, as opposed to classical robes.The map in Monckton's right hand and the left-hand detail of the portrait make direct allusion to the most crucial part of the capture of Martinique. There had previously been several unsuccessful British attempts to take this important sugar island. In 1762 it was heavily garrisoned with over 12, 000 French soldiers, local militia and hired 'privateersmen'. Monckton assemb
