English, 1774 - 1852

Portrait of a Gentleman

The artist who created this portrait had one of the most exotic lives of any artist of his generation. He was raised in London and worked in Dublin, India, Macao, and, finally, Hong Kong. He is best known for his images of these far-flung outposts of the British Empire.
