Oil on Copper Panel Lord Cardross, born June 12th, 1742

A most interesting 18thcentury portrait of David Stuart, Lord Cardross, the eldest son of Henry David, Earl of Buchan, on his 21stbirthday, in 1763. 

Two pictures exist of the sitter, one painted by William Hoare – a famous Bath portrait painter, who often used copper to paint on – and this example, painted by “Mr Morris of the City of Bath”. 

A lovely picture, which is framed in the most exquisitely carved and gilded 18thcentury “Carlo Marratta” frame.

Bath, 1763.

Width 15.25 by height 17.5 inches.

Ref 975
