David Morier thrived under the patronage of the Duke of Cumberland, the effective commander-in-chief of the British Army, producing equestrian portraits of his patron and other senior officers, as well as his commission in 1748 to create the Grenadier paintings, which documented the uniforms and equipment of each of the 49 regiments.
