Sir Jeffery Amherst,
Sir Jeffery Amherst, Knight of the most honorable Order of the Bath, Governor of Vriginia, Colonel of His Majesty's 15th & 60th Regiments of Foot, Lieutenant General & Commander in Chief of His Majesty's Forces in North America from 1758 to 1762.
J. Reynolds pinx.t. R.P [Richard Purcell, in image lower left]
Mezzotint, platemark 355 x 250mm (14 x 9¾"). Trimmed to plate along bottom; margins bit tatty.
Jeffery Amherst, (1717-1797), one of the major figures in eighteenth century military history. Amherst served in the British Army and as Commader-in-Chief of the Forces in many campaigns, including the Seven Years War, the American War of Independence, Governor of Virginia and the French Revolutionary War. Notoriously, Amherst suggested the use of contaminated blankets to spread smallpox to the Delaware and Shawnee native Americans surrounding Fort Pitt. He also served as the first British Governor General in Canada after the defeat of the French. Engraved after the 1765 portrait by Sir Joshua Reynolds (now in the Mead Art Museum at Amherst College, Massachusetts). Reynolds alludes to Amherst's greatest achievement, the conquest of Canada in 1760 in various ways: by showing the ribbon and star of the Order of the Bath he received for his victory; showing an annotated battleplan (barely visible at the bottom of this print although the crucial word 'Montreal' is clearly legible); and showing in the background Amherst's battalion negotiating the Saint Lawrence River, led by Iroquois guides in canoes.

John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough (1650-1722) was a prominent English soldier and statesman whose career spanned the reigns of five monarchs throughout the late 17th and early 18th centuries. Rising from a lowly page at the court of the House of Stuart, he loyally served the Duke of York through the 1670s and early 1680s, earning military and political advancement through his courage and diplomatic skill. Churchill's role in defeating the Monmouth Rebellion in 1685 helped secure James on the throne, yet just three years later he abandoned his Catholic mentor for the Protestant Dutchman, William of Orange. Honoured for his services at William's coronation with the earldom of Marlborough, he served with further distinction in the early years of the Nine Years' War, but persistent charges of Jacobitism brought about his fall from office and temporary imprisonment in the Tower. It was not until the accession of Queen Anne in 1702, however, that Marlborough reached the zenith of is powers, and secured his fame and fortune. Becoming de facto leader of Allied forces during the War of the Spanish Succession, his victories on the fields of Blenheim (1704), Ramillies (1706), Oudenarde (1708), and Malplaquet (1709), ensured his place in history as one of Europe's great generals. Incurring Anne’s disfavour, and caught between Tory and Whig faction, Marlborough, who had brought glory and success to Anne's reign, was forced from office and into self-imposed exile. He returned to England and to influence under the House of Hanover with the accession of George I to the British throne in 1714, but following a series of strokes in later age his health gradually deteriorated, and on 16 June 1722, at Windsor Lodge, the 1st Duke of Marlborough died.

John Churchill, first duke of Marlborough (1650-1722), soldier and statesman. Rising to become a confidential agent of James, Duke of York, Churchill played a major role in crushing Monmouth's rebellion when James became King in 1685. Just three years later, however, he abandoned his Catholic king in favour of the protestant William of Orange. His influence at court reached its height with the accession of Queen Anne. Promoted to Commander-in Chief of the allied forces, he achieved huge victories against the French in the War of the Spanish Succession. However, the increasing unpopularity of the war and Marlborough's arrogance contributed to his dismissal by Anne in 1711. He eventually regained favour with the accession of George I in 1714.

John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough (1650-1722), Soldier and statesman. Rising to become a confidential agent of James, Duke of York, Churchill managed to play a major role in crushing the Duke of Monmouth's rebellion when James became King in 1685. Just three years later he abandoned his Catholic king in favour of the Protestant William of Orange. His influence at court reached its height with the accession of Queen Anne. Promoted to Commander-in Chief of the allied forces, he achieved huge victories against the French in the War of the Spanish Succession. However, the increasing unpopularity of the war and Marlborough's arrogance contributed to his dismissal by Anne in 1711. He eventually regained favour with the accession of George I in 1714.

Silvester Harding 1801
Watercolour and wash, sheet 180 x 160mm (7 x 6¼").
Spencer Compton, second earl of Northampton (1601-43), army officer. A courtier loyal to the crown, Compton was appointed master of the robes to Prince Charles in 1622 and became a close friend of the future king. He raised troops for the bishops' wars of 1639 and 1640 and was quick to side with the king after the outbreak of civil war in 1642. During the Battle of Hopton Heath in Staffordshire the following year he was killed by a blow to the head from a halberd. Watercolour by Silvester Harding (1745/51-1809), artist and publisher. After setting up a shop in Fleet Street with his brother Edward in 1786, Harding was chiefly employed in drawing portraits of theatrical celebrities, and in copying ancient portraits in watercolours, as here. The partnership was dissolved by 1798 (before this watercolour was made). Harding was known to, and esteemed by the collectors of his day, and many examples of his work are in the British Museum. His son George Perfect Harding also specialised in watercolour copies of early portraits.
