Thomas (1769) Lawrence Sold at Auction Prices

Portrait painter, Miniature painter, b. 1769 - d. 1830

Artist Thomas Lawrence, 18th century England's preeminent portrait artist, had humble beginnings as an innkeeper's son. Despite his lack of education, Lawrence was an art prodigy who ably sketched faithful portraits of the inn's guests. In 1787, his talent led him to London's Royal Academy where, at the age of 18, Lawrence began his formal training as a painter. Two short years later, Thomas Lawrence's paintings had garnered such a reputation that Queen Charlotte commissioned him to paint her portrait. 

Thomas Lawrence's portraits are characterized by their accomplished brushstrokes, colors, and textures, but it was Thomas Lawrence the artist, with his refined manner and flare for the dramatic, that secured his position as the preferred portrait artist of the aristocracy.

              May. 29, 2024

              Attributed to THOMAS LAWRENCE (Bristol, 1769 - London, 1830). Untitled. Oil on canvas.

              Est: €5,000 - €6,000

              Attributed to THOMAS LAWRENCE (Bristol, 1769 - London, 1830). Untitled. Oil on canvas. Measurements: 73,5 x 63 cm; 96 x 84 cm (frame). The author offers us a portrait of great sobriety, dominated by a palette of cold tonalities, which are only qualified with the use of rounded forms that contribute delicacy to the piece as it is observed in the treatment of the handkerchief in the neck. Both the composition and the pictorial execution of this excellent portrait fit with the characteristics of the best English portrait painting of the first quarter of the 19th century, and especially with the work of Sir Thomas Lawrence and his closest circle. Sir Thomas Lawrence was, after the death of Joshua Reynolds in 1792, Britain's foremost portraitist. His early training took place in Bath, where he learned from William Hoare the technique of pastel, and from Thomas Barker the correct handling of oil paint. In 1787 he moved to London, where he exhibited his first works at the Royal Academy. He began to triumph thanks to his female portraits, such as the one of Elizabeth Farren, where we can already guess certain traits of sensitivity that he would develop in his more mature production. In 1791 he was admitted to the Royal Academy and the following year, after the death of Joshua Reynolds, he became the king's painter. In 1815 he was knighted and that same year the royal family commissioned a series of portraits for the Waterloo Chamber at Windsor Castle. In 1820 he succeeded Benjamin West as president of the Royal Academy. Lawrence's portraits were based on the "great style" of Reynolds, but the Bristol painter opened the way to a new concept of portraiture with respect to the model, his personal demeanor and his emotional portrayal. He knew how to rescue a very personal vision of his clients, typical of the romantic portrait and of the Victorian era. His models are presented in relaxed and natural attitudes, the brushstroke is delicate, imperceptible in the faces and lighter and sketched in the clothes and the landscape, which almost always has an important role.

              Oil on canvas. Lady Fitzwilliam, daughter of the Earl of Pembroke. Catalogue Note: Colonel Charles Clifton (American, 1853-1928) was a major figure in shaping the automotive industry during its first decades. In 1897, he joined the George N. Pierce company - at that time a bicycle wheel manufacturer - and stayed on when it was reorganized as the Pierce-Arrow Motor Company, becoming chairman of the company’s board of directors in 1916. Clifton was also the founding president of the National Automotive Chamber of Commerce. Clifton joined the Albright Art Gallery Board in 1914, serving initially on the finance committee before becoming vice president and then president, a role he held from 1918 until his death in 1928. In addition to his dedication to the Buffalo AKG, Clifton also served as president of Buffalo General Hospital, and during World War I, he was president of the Allied War Relief and of the Fatherless Children of France. In recognition of his support, especially for children orphaned by the war, Clifton was made a Chevalier of the Legion of Honor by the French government.

Garlick, Sir Thomas Lawrence, A complete catalogue of the oil paintings, Oxford 1989, p. 290, no. 858(c), reproduced via an engravingEngraved: Line, G. T. Doo, 1824 Prince Frederick was the second and favourite son of King George III and Queen Charlotte, and brother and lifelong close companion of his elder brother, the Prince of Wales, later Prince Regent, and subsequently King George IV. From an early age the duke was chosen for a military career. In 1793 York was promoted General and sent to Flanders in command of the British contingent of Prince Josias of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld's army during the Flanders campaign of the French Revolutionary Wars. In 1799 Frederick again received a field command when he was appointed supreme commander of the Anglo-Russian invasion of Holland. Frederick's experience in the Dutch and Flemish wars highlighted the consequences upon the British army of years of neglect. As Commander-in-Chief he pushed through a programme of reform largely responsible for the effectiveness of the British forces serving in the Peninsula War. In the opinion of Sir John Fortescue (1859-1933), Frederick did 'more for the army than any one man has done for it in the whole of its history.'A number of versions of this portrait are recorded by Kenneth Garlick who considers this to be the prime autograph Lawrence. The portrait would have likely been commissioned directly by Prince Frederick; his brother, H. R. H. Prince Adolphus, 1st Duke of Cambridge (1774-1850), directly inheriting it from him. That this portrait is superior upon stylistic grounds is also readily evinced upon comparison. Sir Thomas Lawrence was the most fashionable and also the greatest portraitist of his generation, not only in Britain but also in Europe where tsars and popes sat for him. He was made Principal Painter to George III in 1792 after Sir Joshua Reynolds's death. After 1814 he received a slew of commissions by Prince Frederick's brother, George IV, culminating in The Waterloo Chamber at Windsor Castle. Lawrence was knighted in 1815. Prior to the present portrait, Lawrence had previously been commissioned by Prince Frederick for his portrait and executed two, a half-length and a full-length, which were exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1814 (no. 64) and 1816 (no. 61) respectively. The present portrait is a more informal and intimate image of the Duke however, and depicts the sitter in private dress wearing the star of the Garter pinned on a black frock coat. Given his military career, the Duke took a particular pride in his membership of the predominately marshal Order of the Bath and, despite the relative absence of decorations in the portrait, the Order's sash may be observed in the flash of bright red above his lapel, a focal point in the composition. This portrait was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1822 (no. 73) and the popular acclaim it received resulted in an engraving by George Thomas Doo (1824).

              Est: €3,500 - €4,000

              Circle of SIR THOMAS LAWRENCE (Bristol, 1769 - London, 1830). "Portrait of a Lady. Oil on canvas. Period frame with faults. Size: 89 x 72 cm; 110,5 x 94,5 cm (frame). In this work the author presents us a young lady elegantly dressed following the Victorian fashion, both in the hairstyle and in the attire. The young lady is leaning on a musical instrument on which we can see a score with the stave from Mozart's Marriage of Figaro. The allusion to music indicates that the lady in question is an educated young woman of high society, as music was one of the classical lessons of female education at the time. It is interesting to note these elements, as the author provides us with a portrait of great sobriety, dominated by a palette of cold tones, which are only tempered by the use of rounded forms that add delicacy to the piece, as can be seen in the treatment of the young woman's shawl. Sir Thomas Lawrence was, after the death of Joshua Reynolds in 1792, the most important portrait painter in Britain. His early training took place in Bath, where he learned the technique of pastel from William Hoare and the correct handling of oil paint from Thomas Barker. In 1787 he moved to London, where he exhibited his first works at the Royal Academy. He began to triumph thanks to his female portraits, such as that of Elizabeth Farren, in which we can already discern certain traits of sensitivity that he would develop in his more mature production. In 1791 he was admitted to the Royal Academy and the following year, following the death of Joshua Reynolds, he became the king's painter. In 1815 he was knighted and that same year the royal family commissioned a series of portraits for the Waterloo Chamber at Windsor Castle. In 1820 he succeeded Benjamin West as president of the Royal Academy. Lawrence's portraits were based on Reynolds's "grand style", but the Bristol painter opened the way for a new concept of portraiture with regard to the model, his personal bearing and his emotional portrayal. He succeeded in recovering a highly personal vision of his sitters, which was already typical of Romantic portraiture and the Victorian period. His models are presented in relaxed, natural poses, the brushstrokes are delicate, imperceptible in the faces and lighter and more sketchy in the clothes and the landscape, which almost always plays an important role.
