Henry Richard Fox (later Vassall), 3rd Baron Holland (1773-1840), Whig statesman and patron of art and letters

Sitter associated with 51 portraits
Holland was at the heart of Whig politics and social life. A disciple of his uncle, Charles James Fox, he was committed to the reform of civil and religious liberties. However, his greatest contribution to Regency politics was as host of Holland House where he and his wife, Elizabeth, maintained a lively salon between 1800 and 1840. With guests prominent in science, literature, art and politics, Holland House provided a coherent focus for the Whigs until they took office in 1830.
