- Curator's comments
- The source for this portrait of the Prince is an example of Sir William Ross’s speciality, large-scale miniatures in watercolour on ivory. His black evening dress is relieved by a patterned waistcoat and the blue Garter ribbon and red ribbon suspending the Bath badge. It was painted for Queen Victoria in 1840, and frequently published in print form from 1841 (see 1890,0415.369).
