Portrait Group of Members of the Marylebone Cricket Club Outside the Pavilion at Lord's. Oil on canvas. About 90 members of the Maryleybone Cricket Club and well-known patrons of cricket are shown grouped in the foreground, with other figures seen around and outside the Pavilion. With the growing popularity of cricket in the 19th century, the Pavilion at Lord's was improved and extended. In this painting, the Union Jack and the flag of the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) are flying on the roof of the building, and about 90 members of the MCC, along with well-known patrons of cricket, are shown in the foreground. Those present include Sir Spencer Ponsonby-Fane, the Earl of Darnley, the Prince of Wales (later Edward VII) and W.G. Grace.
