This pastel, though faded, remains a lively portrait and was presumably taken from the life. It depicts the Duke with the blue ribbon and star of a Knight of the Garter. It is one of a number of portraits of the Duke and his family made by William Hoare in the 1750s. 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).
