Portrait of a Clergyman

1756 - 1760. Oil on canvas Not on display

This is an early work by Reynolds. It lacks the verve and brilliance of his later output but is imbued with a direct, intimate mood and a degree of psychological insight. The light functions to highlight the face against the dark background, as well as the clerical collar and the hand holding the book.
