Footnotes

  • After the deaths of Pitt and Fox, they began to be viewed by the makers of commemorative objects as an opposable but complementary pair, and pieces such as these framed miniatures enjoyed a wide audience among collectors, and the historians and political heirs of their subjects. The Fox portrait is based on the Reynolds of 1782. The Pitt relates to the portrait by John Hoppner painted circa 1804-5 but appears to be a unique interpretation.
