English Royal Wardrobe

English Royal Wardrobe - very interesting public television show. Very funny in one part about George the IV. He liked very fancy hair styles and fancy outfits. His wife was reported to have said, "It is to bad George had to be King, because he would have been a much better hairdresser." Smile

George IV was definitely a full figured fellow. I've heard this rhyme some many times as a kid, but never knew it was about King George IV. So formal. I think I will call him "Four" the way that Dr Who named the doctors. Wink

Georgie Porgie, pudding and pie, kissed the girls and made them cry. When the boys came out to play, Georgie Porgie ran away

I wonder if he really had a tiny head, or if that portrait was just about the clothes. His kneecaps are as big as his face,

I took a look at more of Sir Thomas Lawrence's work, and it's a characteristic of his work. That's an extreme example, but they're all like that, when he does full-body. It may have been a fashion thing at the time, as taller people have that kind of proportion.
