Bibliographic Citation: Pingo, Lewis, 1743-1830. D. Garrick. [London] : Thomas Davies, 1780. Etching and engraving with stipple.

Notes: This posthumous portrait of Garrick appeared in a publication of memoirs of his life written by Thomas Davies. The portrait bust style in which Garrick is rendered draws associations between the actor and the ennobled sculptural style of Antiquity. This is fitting, as Garrick liked to present himself as being of an elevated social stature.
