Favourite Item
Oil on canvas in elaborate gilded frame.
A charming portrait of a young lady wearing the daring 'undress' so fashionable at the time.
The sitter looks out at the viewer with a confident, almost amused expression; her right hand is touching her head...in portraiture a symbol of thought.
This painting is of an intimate 'cabinet' size; the 'cabinet' was a small private room in which the owner kept his or her most treasured items.

SIR GODFREY KNELLER (1646-1723) was the most distinguished painter of baroque portraits in England.
Born in Lubeck, he trained with Bol and Rembrandt, coming to London in 1676.
By 1679 he had painted the King and remained the most famous and successful portrait painter in England until his death.
In 1688 he was made Principal Painter to the King and was knighted in 1692 and a made a baronet in 1715.
His style had a profound influence on British portraiture and a large number of artists, some very talented in their own right, emulated his fashionable style.
