        MATTHEW WILLIAM PETERS RA (1742 - 1814) A Woman in Bed (Lydia) Oil on canvas 35.5 x 40cm (14 x 15) Provenance: Private collection Paris The present work, which exists in several versions including one in Tate Britain, relates to Peters' 1777 Royal Academy exhibit, the titillating 'A Woman in Bed.' The work was painted for Lord Grosvenor, and draws on the example of Jean-Baptiste Greuze (1725-1805) whose art Peters had studied in Paris. A review noted the problematic dynamics involved in the display of such an overtly erotic work to the mixed audience at the Royal Academy rather than in the libertine circle of Lord Grosvenor, who kept Peters' painting behind a curtain to heighten the voyeuristic effect as it was unveiled. The subject’s leer, the reviewer wrote, and ‘her still more inviting bosom…prevent the pictures around them from being so much seen and admired as their merits demand, for every man who has either his wife or daughter with him must, for decency sake, hurry them away from that corner of the room’. After a period in Dr Sheridan’s School, in Dublin, Peters embarked on his artistic career, studying under Robert West, whom he portrayed in a fine charcoal double portrait showing the master painting his pupil (1758, National Portrait Gallery, London). Having won a series of prizes at the Schools, and after a period working under Thomas Hudson (1701-79) in London, Peters was dispatched to Italy by the Dublin Society to complete his studies. In Rome, he studied at the Accademia del Nudo and at Pompeo Batoni’s private academy. He moved to Florence in 1763 where he copied Masaccio’s frescoes in the Brancacci Chapel and – with more lasting effect on his art – Titian’s Venus d’Urbino, one of the jewels of the grand ducal collection on display in the Tribuna of the Uffizi. In September of that year Peters was elected to the Florentine Accademia del Disegno. Peters returned briefly to Dublin in 1765, or early the following the year, but, despite flattering press coverage in the Freeman’s Journal, he soon sought the larger stage of London. He exhibited at the Society of Artists in London until 1769, when he showed both with the Society and the newly formed Royal Academy, thereafter transferring allegiance to the latter body. For this, in 1771, he was rewarded with associate status with full membership following – after another sojourn in Italy – in 1777. Despite his success in the metropolis, Peters did not entirely forget Dublin but sent work back to the Society of Artists’ shows on two occasions, in 1768 and 1777.

        Rev. Matthew William Peters, Portrait of a boy in a "Van Dyckian dress"

        Est: €25,000 - €35,000

        At the time of its first known public exhibition in Dublin 1872, the identity of both the artist and the sitter of this painting had been lost. The boy was catalogued as ‘A Spanish Youth’ for the Dublin Exhibition, perhaps due to the sitter’s costume. It is precisely this interesting costume which provides us some notion as to the origin and context of the painting. The young man is dressed in a midnight blue doublet with a lace collar, complemented by cream satin knee breeches with bows and a blue sash laid behind him: accoutrements typical of the 17th century, the type most commonly associated with portraits by Van Dyck. A century later, although the garment was no longer contemporary, an effusion of these portraits began to appear once more in Britain, following the fashion created by Thomas Gainsborough’s 1770 painting Blue Boy. Nearly all the great 18th century portraitists, from Pompeo Batoni and Allan Ramsay to Thomas Gainsborough and Joshua Reynolds, copied Van Dyck's costumes, poses and compositions. The 17th century costume had now been associated with this style and was irrevocably referred to as ‘Van Dyckian dress’. It would seem therefore that the present painting, typical of the late 18th century may have been a direct commission by the quaker merchant and prolific collector Cooper Penrose during his lifetime. Interestingly, the work has been recently attributed to Rev. Matthew William Peters, an English portrait and genre painter who later became an Anglican clergyman. We are grateful to Dr Martin Postle for supporting the attribution on the basis of a photograph.
