"Here indeed we behold a finished portrait; the refined and masterly touches which this great artist has bestowed on this piece, form a rich and delicious feast for the eye: he sits in an elegant and easy position by a table, his left hand reclined with a graceful negligence on some historical books: the background presents a view of somerset house." [P. 300.]
