Introducing…PICTURES!

Ever wonder what some of the people this blog is concerned with looked like??

Sometimes the closest one gets is a silhouette, sometimes a quick sketch, but at other times you find a full oil portrait –┬álike this Raeburn portrait of Spencer, Lord Compton used on a cover for a new reprint of a Georgette Heyer book.

Those posted online usually come from online sources – websites, books, catalogues, etc. And the current list can be seen by clicking on PORTRAITS on the menu above.

There is also a listing of known family portraits whose whereabouts are unknown to me. Any leads would be greatly appreciated!
