Description: Thomas Cooper Gotch, RBA (British, 1854-1931), "The Children of L. Breitmeyer, Esq.", oil on canvas, signed lower right, 54-1/2" x 72". Presented in an attractive giltwood and gesso frame. Provenance: Exhibited Royal Academy, London, 1898, no. 375. Literature: A. Graves, The Royal Academy Of Arts: 1769-1904, vol. 2, p. 279; Cassell, Royal Academy Illustrated, 1898, p. 59; Athenaeum, 3679, 30 April 1898, p.573; The Times, 1 June 1898, p. 4. Gotch was one of the few 19th-century painters of children capable of merging an idealized version of childhood with the personality of the individual sitter. The children depicted in the painting presented here - the brooding Winifred, the confidant Alan, and the reserved baby of the family Cecil - are united by the richly patterned interior and tightly controlled composition, yet set apart by a clearly defined sense of self. As the art critic Charles Caffin wrote of the artist in 1910: "In his imagination childhood marches on, already catching something of the coming light". Reference: Charles Caffin, "A Painter of Childhood and Girlhood", Harper's Monthly Magazine, vol. 59, May 1910, pp. 922-932.
