About this painting

Sir Joshua Reynolds
Colonel Tarleton, 1782
Oil on canvas, 236 x 145.5 cm
© The National Gallery, London, Bequeathed by Mrs Henrietta Charlotte Tarleton, 1951
NG5985

The sitter, Colonel Banastre Tarleton (1754 - 1833) distinguished himself in the American War of Independence, and returned to England as a lieutenant-colonel about the beginning of 1782. Later he was Member of Parliament for Liverpool, a general and a baronet.

The original painting hung in the gallery was painted in 1782 by Sir Joshua Reynolds. Tarleton is in the uniform of a troop, raised during the American campaign, known as the British Legion or (for the cavalry part) Tarleton's Green Horse, of which he was commandant.

It is assumed that the flag above him is of the British Legion. In 1781 Tarleton lost two fingers of his right hand, as Reynolds discreetly shows.
