An unknown Gentleman


Artist: Samuel Collins

Wearing a lilac coloured coat with blue waistcoat
Signed with initials on the obverse and dated 1755, in the original gold coloured frame

Collins was originally educated as an attorney, but quit this profession and became a miniature-painter. He settled at Bath, where he soon obtained a very large practice, and gained the reputation of one of the most perfect miniature-painters in this country. He had numerous pupils, among whom was Ozias Humphry, to whom he eventually relinquished his practice at Bath. He then removed to Dublin and enjoyed a high reputation there. He painted both on enamel and on ivory.
