Watercolour portrait

Being a proud mother who wanted to record the memory of her little boy, Hyacinthe Littleton painted this small watercolour portrait. It was painted in around 1825 and was small enough to be carried around as a close memento. The little boy, Edward Richard Littleton, would later become 2nd Lord Hatherton and live to the age of 72.
