Portrait Of A Lady, Dated 1739, Richard Philips (1681–1741)


Oil on canvas half length portrait of a lady portrayed wearing a pink satin dress with an elegant flowing blue wrap, a lamb (ever so cute!) with a flower garland nearby. The portrait is signed and dated ‘R. J. Philips pinxit 1739’. A charming subject and a good example of British 18th century art. Held in an antique frame.The compo decoration upper left is damaged, but we will have that repaired in the fullness of time.
