Possibly by Thomas Horsley (b. 1754), Possibly late 1700s
A number of portraits of Wesley attributed to Thomas Horsley of Sunderland exist; Horsley is said to have been a pupil of George Romney. It is likely that some of them are copies, as the quality of most of the attributed pictures is not high.
Wesley may have been painted by Horsley on his visit to Sunderland in 1784; Wesley's journal entry for Saturday afternoon, 5 June includes: ‘3 on business, picture!'. But no further evidence has as yet come to light.
