About

Circle of Cornelius Johnson (1593-1662) Portrait of Ralph Hawtrey (1570-1638) Oil on canvas in a painted oval, with marbled spandrels, presented in its spectacular original, hand carved and gilded wooden 'Lely' style frame. This sensitively rendered and atmospheric 17th century portrait is also highly decorative. After a light clean and minimal conservation it is ready to hang and enjoy, it is suitable for both an historic and contemporary interior. Ralph Hawtrey (1570-1638) Ralph Hawtrey of Eastcote House Ruislip, son of Edward Hawtrey, married Mary, daughter of Edward and Mary Altham. He was justice and Deputy Lieutenant of the country of Middlesex. A successful lender of money both in London and the home counties Ralph is recorded as managing the finances of Kings College Cambridge by 1594. In this portrait Ralph sports the traditional and luxurious slashed silk costume of a gentleman of high rank, this also includes a black silk cape and a highly elaborate lace ruff. Cornelius Johnson (1593-1661) Was an English painter of portraits who was of Dutch or Flemish descent. Johnson was active in England between 1618-1643 during which time he was appointed as a "his Majesty's servant in the quality of Picture drawer" by Charles I. His royal portraits include Charles l, Charles ll., and James ll, and these portraits can be seen in the National Portrait Gallery in London. As is evidenced in our portrait, Johnson was known for being particularly accurate and detailed in his depiction of clothing, this makes his portraits especially useful for costume historians and collectors.. Price: £12,750 Framed: 37" x 32" / 93cm x 81cm. Higher resolution images on request. Worldwide shipping available.
