JOSHUA REYNOLDS

LORD HENRY SPENCER AND LADY CHARLOTTE SPENCER, LATER CHARLOTTE NARES: THE YOUNG FORTUNE TELLERS, CA.1774-1775

About the Artwork

In his portraits Reynolds often experimented with the humorous potential of casting children in adult roles. Here, Lady Charlotte and her younger brother, Lord Henry, parody the popular subject of the gullible young dandy so distracted by the gipsy fortune teller that he fails to notice the theft of his purse. While Lady Charlotte perhaps reads the signs of prospective romance in her brother’s small hand, the viewer envisions the future eminence his aristocratic birth assures him.
