Undated portrait of Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington by George Dawe (1781-1829)

Personally I think it looks nothing like the Duke; the nose and face are much too long (though there is somewhat of a resemblance in those eyes) but Dawe’s paintings of Wellington never closely resembled him in my opinion. He does however capture the Wellingtonian style of clothing and characteristic pose.
