Lord Curzon of Kedleston, Viceroy of India 1899 – 1904 & 1904-1905


A bust length photographic portrait of Lord Curzon in civilian clothes, unmounted but with signs of having been pasted to a card on verso, 7.75 x 10ins [197 x 254mm] probably dating from early 1900s, small creases across top right corner. The Hon George Nathaniel Curzon was the eldest son of Baron Scarsdale and was created 1st Baron Curzon of Kedleston in 1898. The best known, most driven, and probably the most charismatic of viceroy, he engendered a good deal of opposition by his seemingly high-handed behaviour, especially in his relationship with his last commander in chief, Lord Kitchener.
