About

(Circle of) Sir Godfrey Kneller (Lubeck 1646 - 1723 London), Portrait of a Lady Sir Godfrey Kneller, 1st Baronet (Born Gottried Kniller, 8 August 1646 Died 19 October 1723) was the leading portrait painter in England during the late 17th and early 18th centuries along with being the court painter to the British monarchy from Charles II to George I. For much of his career Sir Godfrey Kneller would hold a monopoly on the portraiture of British sovereigns and is regarded as one of the most important British artists of 17th and early 18th century. This work entitled "Portrait of a Lady" is housed in its original "distressed" gilt wood frame. The inscription verso of "Campbell" may relate to the sitter although this can not be confirmed. The piece is indicative of the attributes of the works of Kneller, most notably the brushwork and finish along with the portraits subject and facial features which are often identifiable as a constant in Knellers work. This piece was held in a private collection in London up until 2017, were it had undertaken restoration inclusive of relining. The conservation work that was carried out is of an exceptional standard as the piece only required a minor surface clean upon inspection by our conservation partners. A stunning portrait and a piece of British history Framed Size: H 49cm x W 41cm x D 4cm Image Size: H 436cm x W 29cm x D 2cm Provenance: Private Collection London, England Private Collection Sydney, Australia
