SOLD......Portrait of a Young Gentleman c.1740; English School



Item Ref



Oil on canvas in an 18th c. giltwood frame.
A pleasing mid 18th century portrait of a good-looking young man painted by an unknown artist; probably one of the many intinerant painters who travelled the country painting the lesser gentry and prosperous mercantile classes.
However, this portrait is well above average for its type, the face is sensitively painted and with a real feeling of the nature of the sitter; all in all a very attractive early Georgian portrait.
SIZE: 31.75 x 28.25 inches inc. frame.
PROVENANCE: by descent in the south of England.
Verso: old label of "White & Co. Ltd., Furniture Depositories. Bournemouth depot: branches in Portsmouth, Southampton, Winchester and London.
Client's name 'Mrs. Cowland'."
Internal Ref: 8537
