set in gilt-metal frame with inscription verso reading My dear wife's grandfather, W. Williams. G.R"

Mr. Williams was clearly a wealthy individual having had his portrait taken by Engleheart five times, once in 1781, twice in 1782, 1793 and again in 1800.

The Richmond and Engleheart families were closely connected. George instructed his younger cousin, miniaturist Thomas Richmond. Thomas's son George Richmond one of the most influential artists of his day, was a leader of the Ancients, a small group of artist who celebrated the visionary images of William Blake
