Full Length Portrait of Two English Children and Dog

$ 75,000
  • Description
    This charming portrait is a statement piece for any space. The two handsome and elegant sitters are brother and sister and are accompanied by their loyal dog. In 18th and 19th century British portraiture, it is the attractiveness of the sitters that makes a painting desirable and drives price. There is lively brush strokes with imposto in the trees. The nameplate identifies the sitters as Robert & Marianne Lawrence-Townsend - The Family of Lawrence-Townsend were originally descendants of the Lawrence Family of Wiltshire who inherited the name Townsend along with an estate, Steanbridge House near Stroud in Gloucestershire. Robert would appear to be the son born in 1797, educated at Eton and Christ Church, Oxford, former Captain in the British Army and who became a Magistrate for Gloucester. Condition is good with some old repairs. Presents very well and is best viewed with a top key light. Private collection and perhaps Phillips Auctioneers New York 1995 per letter. Framed Size 65.5 x 43. 5
