Lord Ribblesdale

Lord Ribblesdale is an oil-on-canvas portrait painted in 1902 by the American artist John Singer Sargent, depicting Thomas Lister, 4th Baron Ribblesdale. The painting portrays him in his hunting clothes as Master of the Queen's Buckhounds, and is said to epitomise the British aristocrat. The tall hat and the fluted pilaster of the wall behind, the clear silhouette of his long coat, and subtle changes that Sargent made to the sitter's physiognomy – such as an elongated nose, and the head disproportionately small in comparison to the body – emphasise Ribblesdale's thinness and height. The portrait is in the collection of the National Gallery in London.
