Portrait, Published as the Art Directs, by Mrs Hogarth, The Golden Head, May 14, 1781

Mr Walpole in his Anecdotes of Painting, Vol IV, page 22,  speaking of the cartoons at Hampton Court, observes that Sir James Thornhill having made copious studies of the heads, hands and feet, intended to publish an exact account of the whole for the use of students but this work has never appeared. 

As the above plate was found among others belonging to the late Mr. Hogarth, it is not impossible but that it might have been engraved by him for his father in law S. James's intended publication
