Charles Rogers Esq.r. F.R.S. and S.A.I.
Mezzotint and stipple, printed in brown, large margins. 345 x 240mm (13½ x 9½").
Charles Rogers (1711-1784), an art collector. Rogers commissioned this portrait and used the mezzotint in his work 'A Collection of Prints in Imitation of Drawings'. He had reservations about the portrait, writing to Horace Walpole that he thought it made him look too young; Walpole responded that 'posterity will not know at what age the Likeness was taken'.
