Portrait of Prince William III the Son of King George II

About

A portrait of prince William son of king George II. Oil on canvas painted by the Joseph Highmore. Depicting William as a young boy, in military dress. He appears to be brandishing a fencing sward or large riding crop with his faithful dog at his side. Joseph Highmore (13 June 1692 – 3 March 1780) was an English portrait and historical painter, illustrator and author. Highmore was born in London, the third son of Edward Highmore, a coal merchant, and nephew of Thomas Highmore, Serjeant Painter to William III. He displayed early ability but was discouraged by his family from taking up art professionally, and began a legal training instead. At the ending of a clerkship at the age of 17 (during which he continued to attend a drawing academy run by Godfrey Kneller and lectures on anatomy by William Cheselden[1]), he abandoned the law and started to work as a painter.[2]
