An oversized Gentleman


Artist: John Woodhouse

painted on the reverse of flat glass, in gilded wood frame with raised foliate border, the reverse with label inscribed by the artist Painted from recollection/ by J. Woodhouse, Newcastle/ This Picture is to be placed not exceeding 5 feet high.

Woodhouse was an artist of above-average ability, who brought a lively and artistic quality to his work on glass. He took great pains to ensure his work was displayed at its best, backing full length profiles with clear hanging instructions. McKechnie has described Woodhouse's work as broadly life-like and attributes him with a keen sense of observation – qualities which make his silhouettes enduringly popular.
