Oil painting on canvas, Thomas Philip (succesively Robinson, Weddell, and de Grey), 3rd Baron Grantham, later 2nd Earl de Grey, KG, KP (1781- 1859) by William Robinson (Leeds 1799 - Leeds 1839). A half-length portrait of the 2nd Earl de Grey, turned to the left, wearing a greatcoat with fur collar over a high-collared white shirt and a black stock.
