A strong portrait of a Gentleman


Artist: Samuel Andrews

Signed with initials and Dated 1796.

Samuel Andrews was an Irishman by birth, but like John Smart he ventured to India at the end of the 18th century. He arrived in Madras in 1791, moving in 1795 to the same house previously occupied by John Smart. He was certainly in Calcutta in the later 1790s. John Smart was of great influence to Samuel Andrews and the two men must have shared client commissions as so many of their works relate to each other. John Smart influence is apparent in the present work with the dark sky background. This is a particularly strong and fine portrait by Andrews.
