Scarce mezzotint. Sheet 350 x 240mm (13¾ x 9½"). Trimmed to image on three sides, old ink mss. in inscription area.
Seated portrait of Hugh Boulter (1672-1742), probably painted when he was Bishop of Bristol (1719-24), before his appointment as Church of Ireland Archbishop of Armagh, the Primate of All Ireland, a post he held from 1724 until his death. In that role he supported anti-Catholic measures, succeeding in depriving them of the right of voting at elections for members of parliament or magistrates, their sole remaining constitutional right. Beard was a Dublin mezzotinter.
CS 1, state i of ii, of which he notes that there is one known example.
