His Royal Highness William Augustus Duke of Cumberland, &c, &c, &c.
I. Faber ad Vivum Delint. et Fecit.
Sold by I. Faber at the Golden Head in Bloomsbury Square.
Mezzotint, 350 x 255mm. 13¾ x 10". A fine impression with full margins.
Handsome portrait of Prince William Augustus, Duke of Cumberland (1721 - 1765) as a boy; facing and looking towards front, left hand on hip, right hand tucked inside his coat, smiling at the viewer. He wears a wig with a bow at the nape, a sash hanging diagonally from the left shoulder and a star on his breast; cocked hat on a table in front of him, and a statue of a classical warrior in a landscape in the left background. Third son of George II and a life-long soldier, the Duke was described by Horace Walpole as 'proud and unforgiving, fond of war for its own sake'. His victory at Culloden in 1746 ended the Jacobite threat, but his severe treatment of the rebels earned him the nickname 'Butcher Cumberland'. By John Faber the Younger (c.1695 - 1756).
