About the artist
Leading Scottish portraitist Henry Raeburn also attracted English clients, including Thomas Tyrwhitt-Drake, MP for Amersham from 1795, and his wife Anne (née Wickham). Thomas was the eldest surviving son of William Drake, from whom he inherited his MP role. Anne was much younger, a wealthy eighteen-year-old heiress when they married in 1780; they had ten children when Raeburn painted them, and four to come.
