Bartholomew Dandridge was baptised in London on December 17th 1691. His initial training was at the St Martin’s Lane Academy and with Sir Godfrey Kneller, whose studio and practice he took over in 1731 after the latter’s death.

Although he was trained in the relatively dull style of the school of Kneller, he was amongst the first in England to respond to the innovations of the rococo which were being imported into England from France in the early and mid 1730’s. These have a liveliness of composition and lightness and freshness of palette which divides them absolutely from the style of the 1720’s.
by descent to David Pleydell-Bouverie (1911-2006), grandson of William, 5th Earl of Radnor.
