Full-length portrait of Henry John Temple, 3rd Viscount Palmerston (1784-1865), standing in his study, left hand resting on papers. The painting was executed c.1850, when Palmerston was Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, five years before his first term as Prime Minister. After Palmerston's death his widow insisted on the face being replaced with one from an earlier portrait by Partridge, so this mezzotint is the only record of the original image. The painting is now in Parliament's art collection. Palmerston attanded St John's College, Cambridge (1803-6)
