It wasn’t until Philip Jean retired from the Navy that he began to focus his attention on painting portraits. Although best known as a portrait miniaturist Jean was also a talented painter in oils, as can be gleaned from his full-length portrait of Queen Charlotte [Royal Court House, Jersey].

Jean exhibited at the Royal Academy 1787-1802 and painted portrait miniatures of many prominent figures of the day including the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester and their family.
Jean’s style shows an awareness of his contemporaries although his shading is quite idiosyncratic in its short, quick handling as seen in the present work.

It has been suggested by Christopher Bryant that the uniform worn by the sitter could alternatively be the ‘frock’ uniform of the 1st Foot Guards.
