Thomas Glass (1709-86), physician and medical writer. This unusual portrait was engraved and published by Ezekiel Adam Ezekiel, a jeweller and publisher based in Exeter, the same town in which Glass lived and worked. Glass became a physician of the Devon and Exeter Hospital on its foundation (the hospital has moved, but the original building on Southernhay Street still exists and has been converted into residential housing with the name of Dean Clarke House). In 1783 the hospital was presented with the portrait by John Opie from which this engraving derives. Opie's portrait is still owned by the hospital.
