Portrait of Colonel James Lowther (1753-1837), half-length, in uniform 
oil on canvas
29 3/4 x 24 3/4 in. (75.6 x 65.4 cm.)

PROVENANCE:

By descent through the sitter’s family to the present owner.

The sitter’s head was certainly painted by Romney. The costume was executed by a different hand, quite likely after the artist’s death.
