John Pitt, 2nd Earl of Chatham, by George Romney, scanned from 'House of Pitt' by Sir Tresham Lever (1947). This is the portrait on which Jacqui Reiter's excellent drawing is based (pinterest.com/...). It hangs, or used to hang, at Chevening, formerly the home of William Pitt's biographer Earl Stanhope.
'Anna Pitt as Hebe' by Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun. Anna, more usually known as Anne, was the daughter of Thomas Pitt, 1st Lord Camelford, and was William's second cousin. She married another cousin of Pitt's, William Wyndham Grenville, in 1792. © The State Hermitage Museum: Digital Collection.
William Pitt engraved by John Jones, 1789, after the Romney portrait (which explains why he looks so handsome!) He's wearing his Chancellor's robes, and his right hand rests on a paper entitled "Regency Bill", meaning this print was produced on the back of the recently concluded Regency crisis (1788-89). This represents Pitt at the high point of his career. With the French revolution just around the corner, things were never again to be so rosy for him as at this precise moment.
The Pitt Family of Encombe, between 1758 & 1761, by William Hoare. John Pitt of Encombe (1704-1787) came from a long line of Dorset & Berkshire gentry: although related to the Prime Minister William Pitt, Earl of Chatham, he was several generations removed, their common ancestor having died at the end of the 16th century. Pitt married his Irish wife Marcia in 1752; the child is their eldest son William Morton Pitt (1754-1836).
"Portrait of a Young Man" by Pompeo Batoni (1760-1765) at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York - This is another example of the Grand Tour portraits that Batoni was commissioned to paint. In this one, not only is there an Italianate setting, but there are also several objects meant to indicate that the subject was classically educated: sculptures of Roman deities and notables, a copy of the Odyssey, guide books to both ancient and modern Rome, and biographies of painters.
