Lawrence captured the likeness of Capo d’Istria during the Congress of Vienna, where the Count acted as representative for Russia. Capo d’Istria was an enterprising character and eminent statesman, eventually rising to the position of the first President of the newly-formed Republic of Greece. Lawrence presents him with an appearance of openness, gazing directly out at the viewer.
