Description: PORTRAIT OF PRINCESS MARIA CLEMENTINA SOBIESKA POSSIBLY BY SIR GODFREY KNELLER (ENGLISH, 1646-1743).
Oil on canvas, bearing a signature "Sir G. Kneller" on the stretcher. Seated portrait of the princess, holding a book, and with a crown on the table next to her. 30"h. 25"w., in an early gilt frame, 37"h. 32"w.

Maria Clementina Sobieska (1702-1735) was the granddaughter of King John III Sobieski of Poland. On September 3, 1719, she married Prince James Francis Edward Stuart of Wales (1688-1766). His father, King James II, was deposed shortly after his birth (during the Glorious Revolution), but the younger James still claimed the throne as James III upon his father's death in 1701. His numerous unsuccessful attempts to take the throne he claimed inspired the nickname "The Old Pretender."

Condition Report: Painting appears to be 18th century, frame bears a partial framer's label. Additional information is included, including correspondence between the previous owner and both the Spalding Gentlemen's Society and the National Portrait Gallery.
Rebacked on canvas, revarnished with old inpainting along facing right edge of figure.
sw 7/21
Another portrait of the Princess, in an identical pose, purportedly by an Italian artist and of the same period, is discussed as NPG 1262 in Kerslake, Early Georgian Portaits.
