George Romney was an artist of great refinement and sensitivity of feeling who enjoyed a long and successful career especially as a portrait painter. This canvas depicts the honorable Francis North (1761-1817), who would later succeed to the title of the 4th Earl of Guilford. He was the son of the Lord North, the British Prime Minister who is primarily remembered for having been in office during the American War of independence. The younger North was an officer in the British army, eventually rising to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. --MAB 2015
