Although Wilson’s early career as a portrait painter was based in London, he often found support from members of the Welsh gentry, who commissioned him to paint their portraits. Among them was Edward Lloyd, greatly admired by his contemporaries for planting over 400,000 trees in his north Wales estates; and Richard Owen, High Sheriff of Meirioneth in 1756-7.
