'The artist and his family in their house at 21 Brook Street, Grosvenor Square' by John Partridge. A richly decorated and furnished middle class interior of the pre Victorian period. The room shown is probably the drawing room; it is decorated in Biedermier style with heavy red walls, large paintings and book cases. In the centre stands John Partridge and his wife next to the artists's easel, the artist holds a palette but he is not painting. Instead the painting is filled with the accomplishments of the larger Partridge family. In the background a group of the artist's brothers and sisters play musical instruments, others read or chat. All are fashionably dressed, some for the street. A group of members of the family from the older generation sit around a table and seem to be effecting business matters (counting money). All of the 15 figures in the painting are identified. The painting must post-date 1828 when Partridge moved to Brook Street.
