The article attempts to establish the connections between the English Prince, printmaker, portraitist and subject in an early 19th-century portrait engraving rediscovered in a store in Christ Church, Oxford in England. The portrait engraving is part of the collections of Prince George, who succeeded to the throne as George IV in 1820. He was tutored by William Markham, who was the subject of the portrait engraving. The artist who was responsible for the portrait engraving was John Hoppner, who began painting portraits for the Royal family in 1775.
