Pair 19th Century Pastel & Gouache Portraits Of Man & Wife
We are offering for sale this exquisite pair of Victorian Pastel Portraits of a very well dressed lady and her husband, which have been executed in a masterful way by an unknown artist, whose use of the medium is of the highest level of expertise.
-
The lady is seated on a red, buttoned back chair or sofa and is resting her arm on a table covered in similar fabric with a studded and fringed edge.
-
She is wearing a dark grey dress, with black trimmings, which has a cream lace pleated stand up collar and cuffs. She has a locket on a black ribbon around her neck.
Her hair is plaited and piled up on top of her head with an ornament to one side and she is wearing gold drop earrings.
There is a chatelaine hanging from her belt. On the table is a tazza, possibly with a flower arrangement in it and perched upon the very top is a canary.
-
Her husband is seated on a padded roll-back chair and is leaning one arm upon the edge of a table or desk. He is dressed in a black suit with waistcoat and a black cravat with a stud.
There is a gold watch on an albert hanging from his waitcoat.
His hair is quite long and curly and he had a beard and moustache.

The fine detail, particularly on the faces of these portraits is quite remarkable and they make a very handsome pair, unlike so many portraits of men and women of this and earlier periods.

Oil Portrait Of A Lady Michael Dahl (1659-1743) Circle Of
Fine 18thc Oil Portrait of a Lady Circa 1700-1720 Circle of artist Michael Dahl ( 1659-1743) presented in a beautiful gilt decorative frame.
-
MICHAEL DAHL (1659-1743) was a painter of exceptional talent and regarded as the only really serious rival to Sir Godfrey Kneller, for royal patronage, during the years 1690-1714. Dahl's patterns were undoubtedly indebted to the fashion set by Kneller, but Dahl had a lighter palette, and his brushwork applied in shorter and more careful strokes.
-
His self portrait hangs in the National Portrait Gallery and he is famed for having painted a series of wonderful female portraits for the Duke of Somerset, now at Petworth House, and known as the Petworth Beauties.
-
Dahl's portraits of members of the royal family hang at Kensington Palace and Windsor and other examples of his work can be found at the Tate and National Maritime Museum, Greenwich.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Henry Thomas Alken (12 October 1785 – 7 April 1851) was an English painter and engraver born in Soho Westminster London , and was chiefly known as a caricaturist and illustrator of sporting subjects and coaching scenes.His most prolific period of painting and drawing occurred between 1816 and 1831.

Young Henry first studied under his father and then with the miniature painter John Thomas Barber Beaumont (1774–1841)

From about 1816 onwards Alken "produced an unending stream of paintings, drawings and engravings of every type of field and other sporting activity,"and his soft-ground etchings were often colored by hand.

Alken worked in both oil and watercolor and was a skilled etcher.
Alken provided the plates picturing hunting, coaching, racing and steeplechasing for The National Sports of Great Britain (London, 1821).

ABOUT [ GUARD IMPERIAL 1813 ]
The Guards of Honour (Régiment de Garde d'Honneur) were four regiments of light cavalry which Napoleon created in 1813 for his campaigns in Germany to reinforce his Guard cavalry decimated in Russia. The regiments were dressed in the fashion of the hussars. They served alongside the other Guard cavalry, but were not technically part of the Old, Middle or Young Guard.
-
ABOUT: [ GUARD IMPÉRIALE 1804 ]
The Chasseurs à Cheval de la Garde Impériale (in English: Horse Chasseurs of the Imperial Guard) constituted a light cavalry regiment in the Consular, then Imperial Guard during the French Consulate and First French Empire respectively. They were the second senior "Old Guard" cavalry regiment of the Imperial Guard, after the Grenadiers à Cheval. The regiment had its origins in the Guides raised by General Bonaparte during his Italian Campaign of 1796. It was the Chasseurs that usually provided personal escort to Napoleon, and he often wore the uniform of the regiment in recognition of this service. The regiment was not only known for its lavish uniform, but its combat history as well.

King Edward VI (1537-1553) 17thc Dutch Oil Portrait Painting On Oak Panel
I am delighted to offer this rare oil on panel of King Edward VI (1537-1553) as a young child of around 10 years of age which has been painted with great detail as a full length passage portrait in the Manner of William Scrots and set within a later 18th century decorative plaster mounded gilt frame.The portrait is estimated to date from 1670-1700 and is a rare and unique surviving historic work which any museum or private collector would be excited to own as a display piece or investment.
-
The image is unusual, broadly similar but not quite the same as the various 'Scrots' templates. However the identical image, same size, panel, etc is in the collection at Trinity College, Cambridge.
-
As an official royal likeness portraits of this type were in circulation from circa 1550 and were particularly favoured by noble families who wished to demonstrate their allegiance to the monarchy. This portrait was almost certainly one of a group of corridor portraits designed to hang beside fellow monarchs and men and women of rank and historical note.
-
ABOUT THE YOUNG BOY KING
EDWARD VI (1537-1553) was King of England and Ireland from 28 January 1547 until his death. He was the only legitimate son of Henry VIII and his third wife, Jane Seymour.
-
He was born at Hampton Court on October 12th, 1531, His mother dying 12 days later. The heir to the throne, ''His Majesty's most noble jewel'', was brought up with every precaution to ensure his good health. Recent research reveals him as a normally strong and healthy boy, fond of athlethic exercises such as hunting and hawking.
-
Edward was little more than nine when he succeeded to the throne on the death of his father in 1547. In April 1552 he suffered from measles and smallpox, recovering by the end of May, and thereafter he was very much under the influence of the Duke of Northumberland.
-
Early in 1553 Edward became ill with consumption, from which he never recovered. At this time the Duke of Northumberland convinced Edward to ''devise'' the succession to Lady Jane Grey, Northumberland''s daughter-in-law. Edward died on 6th July 1553 and was buried at Whitehall.
-
After his accession to the throne, Edward appears to have sat only once more for his portrait in around 1550 and was painted by William Scrots. This sitting was the likely source for all subsequent variants, in all shapes and sizes, produced of Edward as the King by the Scrots studio, both during the monarch's brief reign and after Elizabeth I's accession and the subsequent re-affirmation of the Protestant faith.
-
Scrots had been court painter to the Regent of the Netherlands, Mary of Hungary , and was recruited by Henry VIII as Holbein's successor at the close of 1545. His work, covering less than 10 years in this country, has never been satisfactorily reconstructed.
-
One certain work can be associated with him from this period - the distorted perspective portrait of Edward dated 1546 (National Portrait Gallery, London). This bore the signature ''Guilhelmus pingebat'' as late as 1713.
-
ABOUT THE ARTIST
WILLIAM (GUILLIM) SCROTS fl.1537-1553. Court portrait painter from the Netherlands. Painter to Mary of Hungary, Regent of the Netherlands,1537, and persuaded to come to England in 1545, probably to succeed Holbein. He was perhaps the most able available Hapsburg Court portrait painter at the time. He disappears from the Royal Accounts in 1553.
