Description

Oil on canvas in a gilt moulded frame.
JONATHAN RICHARDSON (16651745) was the leading native-born portrait painter of the first forty years of the century, also a writer on art and literary topics. He was a pupil of Riley and eventually his heir.
Richardson and Jervas were the busiest native-born portrait painters in rivalry with Kneller and Dahl. Jervas excelled with women's portraits and Richardson was best with men. His works are sound, solid, good likenesses, and unpretentious; this portrait is a fine example.
His writings were immensely influential and fired Reynolds with the desire to become a painter.
SIZE: 38 inches x 33 inches framed.
PROVENANCE: North Country private collection. Verso: an old label for T. Rushworth and Son, Carvers and Gilders, Durham.
