The original painting for the frame was a portrait of Edward Augustus, Duke of York, by Pompeo Batoni. The painting was presented by the Duke of York to the Earl Howe as a token of their friendship. During his youth, and at his father the King’s orders, the Duke had served in the Royal Navy as a midshipman on the Essex under the command of the Earl Howe. During this service the two formed a close friendship.
Price: £100,000 +
The carved elements of the frame, including banners and a ship with anchor, reflect this maritime connection between the Duke of York and the Earl Howe.
The painting was removed from its frame and sold separately by the previous owner sometime in the 1990s.
Gifted to Richard, Earl Howe (1726-1799);
By descent, Gopsall Hall, Leicestershire, England.
