Thomas Lawrence was the pre-eminent English portrait artist of the early 1800’s, and good friend and portrait painter to the young Queen of England.  Both were known for their outrageous humor. When a serious and wealthy young man comes into Lawrence’s studio to have his portrait done by Lawrence it eventually sets off a scandal that rocked the monarchy.   What actually happened behind those closed doors?  The clues are in the painting which Lawrence kept hidden until his death. World Premiere.

“This seemingly innocuous painting of John Joseph Henry by Thomas Lawrence always fascinated me.  As I delved into the history behind the portrait I discovered a story that was so scandalous, titillating, and thoroughly amusing, that I was surprised there hasn’t been a book, play or movie done on the subject matter.” Mark-Brian Sonna.
