Attractive image of Lord Anson, published for John Bowles originally (d. 1779) at the Black Horse in Cornhill; the image was registered in 1821, and presumably printed that year, the portrait was engraved by James McArdel (ca. 1729 1765) after an original oil painting of Lord Anson from 1755 by Sir Joshua Reynolds (1723 1792).

Reverse glass printing is a process whereby a print is transferred to a sheet of glass, varnished and coloured to resemble an oil painting.

A fine three quarter length portrait of George Anson, 1st Baron Anson, right hand on his hip, his left hand to the side with hat under his left arm, a ship with canons firing in the background.
The inscription below reads: 'First Lord Commissioner of the Admiralty Vice Admiral of Great Britain, Admiral of the Blue Squadron & one of his Majesty's most Honble. Privy Council.'

George Anson, 1st Baron Anson, (23 April 1697 6 June 1762) was a Royal Navy officer. Anson served as a junior officer during the War of the Spanish Succession, and then saw active service against Spain at the Battle of Cape Passaro during the War of the Quadruple Alliance.
He then undertook a circumnavigation of the globe during the War of Jenkins' Ear.

Sir Joshua Reynolds (1723-1792) was one of the most important figures of the eighteenth century art world. He was the first President of the Royal Academy and Britain's leading portrait painter. Through a series of lectures on the Discourses on Art at the Royal Academy he defined the style later known as the Grand Manner, an idealised Classical aesthetic. He had a profound impact on the theory and practice of art and helped to raise the status of portrait painting into the realm of fine art.
A flamboyant socialite, Reynolds used his social contacts to promote himself and advance his career becoming one of the most prominent portrait painters of the period.

A print is cemented on the printed side to the surface of the glass, by the assistance of some glutinous body which will not dissolve in water; and then destroying the texture of the paper by water by which method, a complete drawing of the picture designed is obtained on the glass; and may be coloured by the use of oil, varnish, or water colours.
