Roubiliac's terracotta of Ligonier, wearing a fur-lined cloak, is a lively and characterful portrait of the eighty-year-old officer in uniform. 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).
