Portrait of John Giles (1810-1880)

Portrait of John Giles (1810-1880)
Sepia photograph Elliott & Fry 55, Baker Street, Portman Square, W.
Inscribed in ink on reverse, John Giles, born 18th Nov 1810, died 29th May 1880.
Provenance By descent in the Richmond family.

John Giles was a stockbroker and George Richmond's closest friend. A deeply religious man Giles also cherished a glowing admiration for what he termed " the grandeur and the superior wisdom of the Ancients". He was often critical of modern times compared with the perfection of that golden past. This constant reference by John Giles to the "Ancients" resulted in the clique of friends being referred to by that name. George Richmond, Edward Calvert and Gile's cousin Samuel Palmer were among the group.
