Circle of Augustus Leopold Egg
'The Bird Charmer' a 19th Century English Portrait of a Lady in a Silk Dress

1855

About

A fine and jewel like 19th century portrait of a lady painted in the oval. The as yet unknown sitter wears an elaborate costume of floral striped silk with full lace sleeves. Her auburn hair tumbles naturalistically around her shoulder, and is held in place by a pearl headband. A red rose is pinned to her bosom and on her outstretched hand is perches her vibrant yellow pet bird. This painting is attributed to an artist in the circle of Augustus Leopold Egg. Augustus Leopold Egg (1816-1863) Educated in the schools of the Royal Academy, Egg saw himself as a follower of Hogarth, he was also a member of the artist group ‘The Clique’ who were characterised by their rejection of academic high art in favour of genre painting. Augustus sought to combine popularity with moral and social activism which earned him admiration from his fellow-artists. A member of the circle of friends that included Dickens and Wilkie Collins, Egg features in their surviving correspondence. He participated, as actor and costume designer, in their amateur theatricals, which were often conducted for charitable purposes Higher resolution images on request. Worldwide shipping available. Canvas: 15" x 12”, 38cm x 30cm. Framed: 20”x 17, 52 cm x 445cm. Internal Ref: 00098 Price: £9250
