Title

Four portraits on one stone


Artist

Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres

France

29 Aug 1780 - 14 Jan 1867


About

The portraits are based on pencil drawings commissioned from Ingres by the sitters while on holiday in Rome. The first to have his portrait drawn was The Hon Frederick North (bottom right). Portraits of North’s sister, Lady Glenbervie, her husband, Lord Glenbervie, and their son, Frederick Sylvester North Douglas, followed. Ingres is believed to have copied his drawings onto lithographic stone in Rome. The stone was then taken back to England by the family where it was printed. It is thought that Lord Glenbervie wanted to use the lithographed portraits to illustrate his memoirs.
