About

Circle of Robert Byng British, (1666-1720) Portrait of a Girl with Parrott and Peaches Oil on canvas Image size: 29 inches x 24 inches Size including frame: 36 inches x 31 inches A fine half-length oval portrait of a girl holding a parrot, circle of Robert Byng. Wearing a fashionable silk dress and robes of the day, the sitter is clearly from a family of some standing and wealth. She holds a parrot on her finger and is pictured with two peaches on a side table. During the 17th and 18th century parrots or popinjay’s as they were known were a status symbol, as only the very wealthy could afford them. Peaches were also a highly prized and expensive treat and during this period were used as a visual metaphor for youth and immortality. The portrait has clearly been executed by an artist of great ability who has been influenced by Robert Byng. Robert Byng was a portrait artist from Wiltshire. He worked as a studio assistant to Sir Godfrey Kneller, a leading portrait painter working in England during the late 17th and early 18th century. As well as working in Kneller’s studio Byng produced a number of works in his own right. Examples of his paintings can be found in public art collections including Wells City Council, Thetford Museum & the University of Oxford. The painting is housed in its original period gilt frame, which is in excellent condition.
