About

Dimensions: 29 x 24.5cm Provenance: Paula Peyraud (1947-2008) Bloomsbury, New York, 'The Paula Peyraud Collection: Samuel Johnson and women writers in Georgian society, 6 May 2009, lot 12 Woolley and Wallis, Salisbury, 'Paintings', 21 March 2012, lot 190 Private collection, Wiltshire Sir William Beechey RA was an English portrait painter born in Burford in the Cotswolds in 1753. He entered the Royal Academy Schools in 1774 and first exhibited at the RA in 1776, continuing to do so up to 1839, having one of the longest careers as an Academy exhibitor. He received some training from Zoffany and most of his portraits from 1776 to 1786 are small-scale pictures, sometimes full-lengths or conversation pieces, which emulate Zoffany`s style. After some years in London he moved to Norwich where he began to paint life-scale portraits and built up a successful practice. He returned to London in 1787 and was made portrait painter to Queen Charlotte in 1793. Some of his most known portraits include the series of the 'Royal Princesses' 1797, and 'The King reviewing the Dragoons', 1798, all in the royal collection. Literature: Ellis Waterhouse, 'The Dictionary of British 18th Century Painters', 1981.
