Lord Bishop of Rochester, Dean of Westminster, and tutor to the late King. This portrait of Sir Joshua's distinguished friend, is one of the finest he ever painted. True to nature and may be said only to be equalled in the celebrated portrait of Lord Heathfield in the National Gallery. The face appears to breathe, while the expression marks the individuality of a true resemblance. It has been repeatedly engraved by S.W. Reynolds, who pronounced it one of the finest of Sir Joshua's works. (On canvass--3 ft. 4 inh. by 4 ft.) [P. 6.]
