Circle of Sir Thomas Lawrence
British, (1769-1830)

Portrait of Andrew Farmer
Oil on canvas
29.5 inches x 24.5 inches

A fine half-length portrait of a gentleman believed to be of Andrew Farmer by circle of Sir Thomas Lawrence. The sitter is clearly a gentleman of note being depicted in a high backed chair and leaning slightly forward. This seems to suggest he is at his desk giving the impression of a man of purpose. His Byronic hairstyle and clothing also mark him as a man of fashion. The portrait has clearly been executed by an artist of great ability in a similar style to Sir Thomas Lawrence. The painting is housed in its original period gilt frame, which is in excellent condition.

 

Provenance: Descendent of Andrew Farmer

Price £4,600
