Master Ward

1771 - 1773. Oil on canvas.
Not on display

The young gentleman is depicted seated on a stone with his dog beside him and a landscape with a river behind. Romney offers a pleasing image of childhood, captured with a simple, humane touch characteristic of this painter. The portrait has a Neo-classical air with a refined elegance much appreciated by the British aristocracy. The identity of the sitter is uncertain but he may be a member of the families of the Earls of Dudley or Viscounts of Bangor.
