Stubbs’s portrait shows George riding in Hyde Park. He wears fashionable dress in the buff and blue colours associated with the Whig politicians who formed the political opposition. George loved both clothes and horses, spending lavishly on both. He remained fond of this painting and in 1822 moved it to the secluded retreat in Windsor Great Park where he spent the last years of his life. Probably painted for George
