John Eardley Wilmot - Portraits


Portraits of Wilmot include one by Joshua Reynolds, later engraved by Francesco Bartolozzi, another by Dance now at the Thomas Coram Foundation for Children, with a copy in the Royal Courts of Justice, and a third attributed to Joseph Wright of Derby, now in the Inner Temple.

A handsome posthumous portrait was painted in 1812 by Benjamin West, showing in the background West’s allegorical painting Reception of the American Loyalists in England.

Famous quotes containing the word portraits:

    You that would judge me do not judge alone
    This book or that, come to this hallowed place
    Where my friends’ portraits hang and look thereon;
    Ireland’s history in their lineaments trace;
    Think where man’s glory most begins and ends
    And say my glory was I had such friends.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    It is not merely the likeness which is precious ... but the association and the sense of nearness involved in the thing ... the fact of the very shadow of the person lying there fixed forever! It is the very sanctification of portraits I think—and it is not at all monstrous in me to say ... that I would rather have such a memorial of one I dearly loved, than the noblest Artist’s work ever produced.
    Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806–1861)

    There are portraits and still-lifes
    And the first, because ‘human’
    Does not excel the second,
    Charles Tomlinson (b. 1927)
