This version of Lawrence's 1822 full-length portrait (Wallace Collection, London) shows the dash and bravura of the First Gentleman in Europe, and how as with all Lawrence's portraits of the King from the earliest as Prince of Wales explains his irresistible popularity as iconographer for a patron of the King's sophistication and taste.
