Description:
Sir William Beechey (Burford 1753-1839 Hampstead) Portrait of George Nugent Temple Grenville, 1st Marquess of Buckingham (1753-1813), bust-length, in the uniform of the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland oil on canvas 76.8 x 63.4cm (30 1/4 x 24 15/16in). Footnotes The son of the Prime Minister, George Grenville, this George Grenville was also destined to become another prominent politician. After serving in the House of Commons he succeeded his uncle as 3rd Earl Temple in 1779. After being Lord Lieutenant of first Buckinghamshire and then Ireland he rose to ascendancy as the King's supporter against the Fox-North administration and went on to become Home Secretary in 1783 when his cousin William Pitt became prime Minister. He was then rewarded in 1784 with the Marquessate of Buckingham (which he came close to refusing on the grounds that he believed himself worthy of a dukedom). He was made a Knight of the Garter in 1801. In November 1787, he was again appointed Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, this time under Pitt, but his second tenure of this office proved less successful than the first. Grattan denounced him for extravagance; the Irish Houses of Parliament censured him for refusing to transmit to England an address calling upon the Prince of Wales to assume the regency; and he could only maintain his position by resorting to bribery on a large scale. Having become very unpopular, he resigned his office in September 1789. He subsequently took very little part in politics. Buckingham largely completed the magnificent construction of Stowe begun by his uncle and was depicted by Gainsborough and by Reynolds in a family portrait, amongst other artists, as well as being the subject of numerous caricatures, including several by Gillray, who depicted him as a pig (with his nose in the political trough).
