Thomas Williams (1737–1802) was from 1785 chief agent of the Mynydd Parys copper mines near Amlwch. He also established numerous smelting works and a distribution network of shipping. A leading figure in the early Industrial Revolution, in 1790 he became MP for Great Marlow. This portrait depicts him at the height of his power during the 1790s and hung at his country seat in Berkshire. Sir Thomas Lawrence was a child prodigy who rapidly established himself as the leading portrait painter of the Regency and the reign of George IV.
