Charles James Fox (1749-1806), Whig statesman

Sitter associated with 299 portraits
Charles James Fox led the Whig political party and was an opponent of Pitt the Younger. Reckless in politics as at the gaming tables, Fox held office briefly as a Tory under Lord North but soon switched sides leading the opposition through a long political life. He championed the French revolutionary cause, America, Ireland, reform and George, Prince of Wales. A supporter of the revolutionary cause in France, his credibility was diminished from 1792 by the excesses of the French revolutionaries.
