A three quarter length portrait miniature of a Gentleman in gold edged brown suit


Artist: Thomas Redmond

Signed in full and dated 1761 on the obverse (Redmond's usual signature is a cursive TR - so to find the signature in full is rare).

Dated 1761 indicates that this is an early example by Redmond who was apprenticed to a house-painter at Bristol and then went to London where he studied at the S. Martin's Lane Academy in 1762.

Redmond painted miniatures and small crayon portraits and his work was shown at the exhibitions of the Incorporated Society of Artists and the Free Society of Artists at the Royal Academy between 1775 and 1783.

Redmond appears to have been in London between 1762 and 1766, but in 1767 his exhibits were sent from Brecon and in 1769 from Bath, where he spent the rest of his life. He died at Bath in 1785 leaving three sons.
