Miniature of Sir Richard Wallace at the Wallace Collection

The most intimate surviving portrait of Sir Richard Wallace has returned to Hertford House, on long-term loan from the Victoria & Albert Museum.

This charming portrait miniature by Candide Blaize shows him at the tender age of seven, just after he had been brought by his mother Agnes Jackson to Paris, to begin life with the family of his father, the future 4th Marquess of Hertford. On display in West Gallery II.
