An unknown Gentleman


Artist: Charles Hayter

Set in the original gold frame, the reverse with plaited hair

Charles the miniaturist responsible for this fine portrait, was the son of Charles Hayter (1728-1795), an architect from Twickenham, and his wife, Elizabeth Holmes. He first trained with his father, but showed an inclination for drawing by producing some small pencil portraits, principally of family members. He was enrolled in the Royal Academy Schools in London in 1786 at the late age of about 25. From then on, he worked as a painter of portrait miniatures in London, and also Essex, and in 1832 in Winchester. He exhibited 113 portrait miniatures between 1786 and 1832, principally at the Royal Academy and had a reputation for creating a good likeness.

Charles Hayter taught perspective (on which he was an authority) to Princess Charlotte, King George IV's daughter, to whom he was later appointed Professor in Perspective and Drawing.
