Cover:   Thomas Griffiths Wainewright (1794–1847), George Gordon Byron, 6th Baron Byron (1788–1824) September 1813, oil on canvas, 89 x 69 cm. Collection: Newstead Abbey NA 496, gift from Baroness D’Erlanger, 1936. Wainewright was trained by Thomas Phillips (1770–1845), who painted a similar portrait of Byron in the same month (later making several copies of it) and another of him wearing a flamboyant Albanian costume that Byron had acquired in Albania in 1809, now in the British Embassy in Athens. Wainewright shows a hint of embroidered Albanian tunic beneath Byron’s black cloak. Wainewright, suspected of murdering three relatives, was convicted of forgery and transported to Van Diemen’s Land in 1837.
