George, No. 12629
A portrait of Sir Thomas Stepney standing under the porch of Brook's Club in St. James's Street; the double door with glass panels is behind him. His head is turned in profile to the l., his r. hand in his breeches pocket. He wears a round hat with a low crown, double-breasted tail-coat, double-breasted waistcoat, a small stock, knee-breeches, and striped stockings with pumps.
Stepney (1760-1825), or Prendergast and Llanelly, was Groom of the Bedchamber to the Duke of York. See Harrison, Notices of the Stepney Family, 1870, pp. 42-4. A similar but less competent amateur portrait was published in 1791, see No. 7977.
