A pair of portraits of young ladies, c.1700. Pen, ink and wash, on blue paper. Form a former collection where they were attributed to Kneller which appears engraved on the mounts. These are more likely to be by one of Kneller's studio assistants like Edward, or his brother Robert, Byng. They were both studio assistant of Sir Godfrey Kneller and held in high esteem by the artist. Although a number of assistants were undoubtedly employed at Kneller's studio, this particular type of portrait drawing has generally been classified as the work of Edward Byng in conjunction with his brother Robert (c. 1668-1720) who was also an assistant to Kneller. Both drawings are in period 18th century Georgian frames with gilt slips.
