Sir William Herschel (1738-1822)

Photogravure of Wiliam Herschel after John Russell entitled 'Wm Herschel'. The Georgian Planet with its Satellites, 1794. The original portrait was produced by John Russell (1745-1806) in 1794 and shows William, then aged 56, holding a sketch of 'The Georgian Planet with its Satellites'. The Georgian planet is the name Herschel gave to Uranus the planet he discovered in 1781 naming it after King George III, a common tactic used by those looking for patronage.
