Rosenhagen, fashionably dressed, stands in profile, holding his hat and cane. He gazes with a complacent smile at a bust portrait of Lord Lansdowne. Beside him is etched In te Dominne speravi.
The Rev. Philip Rosenhagen (?1737-98) was an intimate at Shelburne House and popular in the Prince of Wales’s circle until he became a Pittite, perhaps in consequence of his repeated refusal to perform the marriage of Mrs. Fitzherbert and the Prince.
