SOLD...Portrait of a Lady c.1710; English School



Item Ref



Oil on canvas in Victorian giltwood frame.
An English School painting showing strong signs of the influence of Sir Godfrey Kneller, Painter to the Royal Court and the most fashionable artist of his time.
This provincial portrait was probably painted by one of the many itinerant artists of the early 18th century who went from town to village painting the local lesser gentry and prosperous tradespeople.
Clearly this unknown artist was aware of Kneller's style and that the feigned oval was the height of fashion.
Although this artist did not have a great talent, this is a very pleasing slightly naive portrait and redolent of its period.
SIZE: 30 x 25 inches canvas
37.5 x 32.5 inc. frame
PROVENANCE: By descent in a Berkshire family.
Internal Ref: 8487
