Romney's best later portraits such as this are among the most polished and elegant products of British eighteenth century art. The plain depiction of good English common sense is elevated by dynamic tenchique and dramatic lighting, and it is unsurprising that it was to painting such as this that Grand Manner British painter looked back a hundred years hence in their deification of the Age of Reason.
