Review Entries for Day Wednesday, January 15, 2014

The coronation of King Charles II took place in 1661, but not before, as Prince of Wales, the king had been chased around Cornwall, Ireland, France, Holland and the Channel Islands often with Cromwell hot on his heels.

 

 

 

 David des Grandes (FS21/321)

 

This 17th century miniature (FS21/321) painted by David des Grandes for the Royalists supporters of The Throne shows the young prince wearing a blue sash and The Order of The Garter. The miniature, which is one of a private collection of 11 miniatures, has an estimate of £2,000-£3,000.

 

From a different collection of miniatures is this charming 19th century example of a girl called Beatrice holding a pink rose (FS21/326).

Review Entries for Day Friday, April 03, 2009

It is rare to find true primary source historical material. Thankfully it does happen, Time Team find some most weeks! and here is a great example in our auction sale.

In these two early Victorian family portraits the artist, John Bridges has not only produced strong figure studies which become family records, but has included a wealth of historical information within the interiors, none more so than the inclusion of a small circular continental stool which is featured in two family portraits, one of 'Little Betsie' Spiers as a girl in fancy dress painted in 1845 and one of Mrs Richard James Spiers with her baby son painted in 1836.

The stool could have been acquired on a Grand Tour or perhaps bought from an importer. However it came to England it was surely an admired and treasured family possession and to complete the historical circle the very same stool will be sold together in the same sale as the two family portraits on 23 April 2009 in Exeter. The portraits are estimates at £600-800 each and the stool is expected to make £150-250

Henry F. Tidey was a miniature and portrait painter who exhibited several dozen times at The Royal Academy from 1839-1869. This watercolour portrait of the handsome young army officer Captain Randolph Charles Wilson was painted in 1852. There is a record of a ‘Captain Randolph, Grenadier Guards’ being hung at The Royal Academy in 1853. Could this be one and the same? It is a nice example of how a portrait has a story to tell. The sale is this Wednesday 14th January 2009, and the estimate is £100-200.
