Description

Robert White’s drawings are rare in private collections, although there are ten works in the Huntington Library, California and a further thirteen in the British Museum, London. In her dictionary, Daphne Foskett notes that the present drawing is very close in detail to a later portrait of the King by White in the collection of the Dukes of Portland.
