A portrait miniature of an elderly Gentleman, watercolour on ivory


Artist: John Bogle

Wearing blue coat, white waistcoat with pearl buttons and frilled white cravat with jewelled stickpin
Signed on the obverse and dated 1793
Set in a gold frame the reverse with plaited hair within gold mount and blue glass border

Bogle was born in Scotland and studied at the drawing school in Glasgow before turning his attention to portrait miniatures. He moved to London where he exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1772 to 1794. He clearly had a fashionable and elite clientele and painted the likes of the novelist Fanny Burney, in 1783 and accompanied her to the trial of Warren Hastings. He returned to Scotland in 1800.

Regretfully there are no clues to help identify this sitter but the jewelled silhouette tie pin indicates that the sitter was a Gentleman of some wealth and status.
