Earl Beatty was the most distinguished naval commander to serve in the Great War; he was Vice-Admiral in command of the British advance forces at the Battle of Jutland in 1916. David Beatty was knighted in 1914 and created Earl Beatty in 1919, the year in which the present portrait was drawn. Earl Beatty was married to Ethel, eldest daughter of Marshall Field of Chicago ([see] de Làszlò's portrait of the Countess Beatty)

Gratitude to Wendy & Gordon Hawksley of Sheffield, England for sending me the image and information.
