Description: A half-length to left portrait of Inigo Jones, wearing a brown coat, large plain white collar, cuffs and a brown skull cap. He holds a paper in his left hand. It was commissioned by Sir Edward Littleton, MP 1725-1812. Hogarth's portrait was painted 100 years after the death of Inigo Jones (1573-1652) and was based on an engraving of a drawing by van Dyck. Jones devised dramatic court entertainments for James I and Charles I and encouraged the introduction of European art and architecture into England. He designed the first Italian-style buildings in England, including the Queen's House at Greenwich.
