We have confirmed the sitter is the said Colonel Stanley Arnold, as there is a smaller, but virtually identical painting of him in the Museum of Liverpool, where his title is given as 'Colonel S. Arnold Commanding Officer of Lancashire Royal Garrison Artillery Militia (1888-1904)'.
The museum lists it as being by an unknown artist, but, in our opinion it is also by Eugen Schwarz.

Colonel Arnold is seen in his navy blue uniform, with the artillery grenades on the collar, gilt epaulettes and a gold braid sash.
The medal Col Arnold is wearing is the Companion of the Order of the Bath (Civil division) pre-1917 breast badge.

Stanley Arnold was born in 1845 in Walton, Liverpool, the son of Samuel J. Arnold, a general produce broker. He had a monied background and in the census of 1871, at the age of 26, was living with his 21 year old wife Frances Elizabeth (nee Edwards) at 30 Gloucester Place, London W.1 with a butler, cook, housemaid and lady's maid.

He joined the Royal Lancashire Artillery as a Captain in 1872 and is shown on the Army List in 1878. The base for the Royal Lancashire Artillery was the Seaforth Barracks in Liverpool.

The Royal Lancashire Artillery Militia, was one of many militias throughout the country, which were incorporated in the early twentieth century into the newly formed Territorial Force.

By 1881 and also 1891, the family were living at Addlestrop House, Stow on the Wold in Gloucestershire and Stanley was a Lieutenant Colonel and Hon. Colonel, The Lancashire Artillery, Southern Division, Royal Artillery.

He was also a Justice of the Peace. The family, including his two daughters, had a multitude of servants. Addlestrop House is a beautiful mansion and a Grade II listed building, images are on google.

By 1901, they had moved to Barton House, Barton on the Heath, Warwickshire,a superb building, but on the 14th March,1906 Stanley Arnold died at Chipping Norton,Oxfordshire,two years after his portraitist.




Very Good Order Throughout / Frame with Minor Repairs.
The provenance of the painting is by descent from the family
Eugen Schwarz was a fine portraitist who studied under Ferdinand Keller in Karlsruhe and under H. Canon in Vienna.
