Media: oil on canvas

Size: 76.2 x 63.5 cm

Acquired: 1949; Purchase

Accession Number: NMW A 98

Sir Richard Lloyd (1696-1761), Recorder for Harwich, Orford and Ipswich, was MP respectively for Mitcham, Malden and Totnes between 1745-59, and retired on his appointment to a judgeship of the Exchequer in 1759. The portrait probably dates from the early 1750s when Gainsborough was working in his native Suffolk or Ipswich, although the cut and pattern of the splendid waistcoat recall the fashion of the previous decade.
