An 18th century portrait miniature of a gentleman, painted on ivory

£ 2,000

Artist: George Place

wearing a blue velvet coat with red collar, white waistcoat and frilled cravat, his powdered hair en queue
set in the original gold frame with plaited hair on the reverse within gold mount and blue glass border

This is a strong and lively portrait by a much sort after artist.

After practising for a time in Dublin Place went to London and, in 1791, when he was living at 37 Southampton Street, he sent a "Portrait of a Gentleman" to the Royal Academy. Next year he sent, from 56 Poland Street, ten miniatures, and he again exhibited in 1793 and 1797. In these years his address was 211 Piccadilly and 48 Great Marlborough Street. After some years in London he went to York, and afterwards to India, where he appears to have followed his profession at Lucknow; but nothing is known of his career in the East. He died in India about 1809.
