George commissioned the miniature artist Henry Bone to make a number of enamel paintings after works by leading artists and Old Masters. These were displayed in splendid carved frames. This example is after a painting by Annibale Carracci which was in the collection of George III. By 1816, a group of Bone’s enamel copies were hanging in George’s bedroom at Carlton House.

Commissioned in 1814 and 1804 respectively
