A Gallery of Ozias Humphry

Ozias Humphry (Honiton, Devon, England, 8th September 1742 – London, England, 9th March 1810)

Ozias Humphry, Portrait Painter in Crayons to the King, died on this day. To read about his remarkable life, click here, or to discover more about the Rice portrait, which some believe shows a young Jane Austen, click here.

Its a pleasure to present some of his remarkable paintings to you; I hope you enjoy them!
