Early 18th Century English School Antique Oil on Canvas Depicting A Family Group Portrait in Attic Found Condition

 

An early 18th Century English School antique oil on canvas family group portrait.

This is rare subject matter with the figures depicted sitting on caned walnut chairs in a garden setting, possibly a folly. The gentleman pours his wine into a baluster-stem wine glass from an onion-shaped bottle. There are no forks on the table, just sabre-knives. A lobster is served on a pewter serving dish with other pewter plates set and a master table salt too. The gentleman appears to be entertaining two ladies whilst a servant carries a glass away from the table and a peasant looks on from beyond and a dog plays in the foreground.

The sitters and artist are unknown.

Condition - Offered in unrestored, attic found condition. Unframed with paint losses and traces of overpainting too. Verso, there are a couple of old patch repairs and the painting has been relined historically. If restored, this would no doubt reveal a very interesting period painting. A further detailed condition report is available upon request.

Size: Height 73.7 cm (29 1/4") x Width 56.5 cm (23 1/4")
