Description

Oil on canvas in a slim modern frame.
A pleasing early 18th century portrait of a good-looking youth, really little more than a boy, painted by an unknown artist who was influenced by the style of Verelst; probably one of the many intinerant painters who travelled the country painting the 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 and the detail of the sitter's expensive lace is depicted with great care. All in all a very attractive early Georgian portrait.
JOHN VERELST (active 1698-1734) was born in England, of Netherlandish stock. His father was Harman Verelst, a portrait painter who came to England in 1683, part of the famous family of artists....Pieter, Harman, another Pieter, John, Maria, Simon and Willem.
SIZE: 48.5 x 36 inches inc. frame.
PROVENANCE: A Private Collection of a Leicestershire family for over 70 years,the painting cleaned and relined whilst in their possession.
Internal Ref: 8782
