  • The sitter, George IV when Prince of Wales, is depicted wearing the ribbon and star of the order of the Garter. The portrait miniature derives from a portrait of the prince by Sir Joshua Reynolds exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1785. The miniature is signed by the artist, Peter Adolf Hall (1739-1793), in the right background.

    The Hertford family owned several portraits of George IV (see P563, P559), who was on close terms with the 2nd Marchioness of Hertford (particularly between 1806 and 1820) and her son Lord Yarmouth, later 3rd Marquess of Hertford.
