Portrait of Sir John Trevelyan, 4th Bt (1734-1828).

In 1787, whilst probably still working on Sir John Trevelyan's portrait, he wrote 'This cursed portrait painting! How I am shackled by it! I am determined to live frugally, that I may enable myself to cut it short, as soon as I am tolerably independent, and then give my mind up to those delightful regions of the imagination.'
