A Rare and Utterly Charming Early 17th Century Oil on Canvas of a Baby. A rare and splendid early 17th century English oil on canvas portrait of a young boy - almost certainly the baby James II (1633 - 1701) son of Charles I (1600 - 1649). This portrait shows the baby James II which is taken from the family portrait of Charles I and his family painted in 1636 by Sir Anthony Van Dyke (1599 - 1641).Painted almost certainly during or just after the main family portrait this could be a small study either painted as a portrait in it's own right or as a preliminary oil to the family work. The canvas is of a very coarse early weave and the frame is a Florentine carved and gilded example.. In first class order - the frame having historic repair and small losses but ready to hang.. A very special oil study which I wholeheartedly recommend.
And which would make a notable addition to a collection of early portraiture.. Measurements including the frame 19.5" x 17.5". I hope you will afford me the privilege of taking time to look at my offerings on here.
I will offer you honesty and transparency. I will clearly show you the entire work of art - front and back - and detail all it's good and bad points.
I will not be vague about age or provenance or any later work carried out. I also offer inspection at my home on all pieces with no obligation. It has to be good enough to grace my own home should it not sell.
I hope you will find something you like - please message me with questions - You will find me accommodating and friendly. This is the exact cost to me.Some larger paintings can require a courier who will personally deliver to you... This may take a little longer to arrive. For international carriage costs please message me.
