A well-executed portrait of a lady by a follower of Sir Godfrey Kneller. The subject, posed without her wig and refinery, stares confidently at us assured of her place in society. The portrait has clearly been painted by an artist of great ability who has been influenced by Sir Godfrey Kneller.
Sir Godfrey Kneller was a leading portrait painter working in England during the late 17th and early 18th century. He was born in Lubreck , Germany, and studied under Rembrandt. He settled in England in 1676 where he ran a successful studio and became a court painter to the monarchy and members of the aristocracy.
The painting is housed in new, English made gilt ‘Lely’ frame, which is in excellent condition.
