This signed portrait by Bartholomew Dandridge is the smaller of two versions. It is thought to represent the architect and landscape gardener, William Kent, on the basis of likeness and the depiction of book, plan and monument in the other version (not National Portrait Gallery). More detailed information on this portrait is available in a National Portrait Gallery collection catalogue, John Kerslake's Early Georgian Portraits (1977, out of print).
