The Honorable Henry Fane (1739–1802) with Inigo Jones and Charles Blair

Sir Joshua Reynolds British

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 628

The product of five years of work, this is Reynolds’s largest group portrait. Expressing carefully calibrated social hierarchies and emotional ties, Reynolds arranged the three men in a fictional landscape setting. Reynolds would have based his composition on individual sittings in the studio, subsequently arranging the figures with such props of aristocratic leisure as the greyhound, wineglasses, and silver ewer.
