Description

David Garrick (1717-1779), a celebrated actor and playwright, travelled in Italy in 1763-5; his portrait by Batoni was made as a gift for Richard Kaye, in exchange for an antique gem that Kaye had found at the Baths of Caracalla. Garrick holds an illustrated edition (1736) of Terence's Comedies, with a page showing the masks for the Andria copied from a manuscript in the Vatican Library. Various copies of this painting are known.
