A three-quarter-length portrait of traditional 'kit-cat' size (36 x 28 inches). Pearson sits to the left in captain's (over three years) full-dress uniform of 1774 to 1787 with a tie wig and a sword visible on the right. As a lieutenant in the East Indies he did well during the Seven Years' War, where he was severely wounded. He was subsequently unable to obtain a commission because his senior officers twice died before they could fulfil their promises.
