Joshua Reynolds Sold at Auction Prices

Painter, Porträtmaler, Miniature painter, Flower painter, b. 1723 - d. 1792

Sir Joshua Reynolds' artwork is often recognized for its bold strokes and multiple thick layers of paint (impasto) that create an almost 3D effect on the canvas. Sir Joshua Reynolds' paintings were, in part, inspired by the works of 16th century Renaissance painters. Due to his ability to reflect realistic movement and emotion in his paintings, Sir Joshua Reynolds was among the most sought-after portrait artists of the 18th century.

Though King George III didn’t care for his art, and he was not popular with the monarchy, Reynolds became the first president of the Royal Academy in 1768 and received a knighthood. Much of Sir Joshua Reynolds' self-portraiture in the 1760s, during his classic period, was created with hard lines and lacks the warmth of his other works.

                  REYNOLDS JOSHUA: (1723-1792) REYNOLDS JOSHUA: (1723-1792) English portrait painter, a founder and first president of the Royal Academy of Arts. A good A.L.S., Joshua Reynolds, one page, 4to, London, 18th October 1783, to John Wauchope. Reynolds states that he has been desired by Sir William Forbes to 'send to you a note of what the late Lord Errol (sic) was indebted to me for pictures painted for him' At the foot of the letter Reynolds provides his account, totalling £163-5-0 and comprising a 'whole length' study of Lord Erroll (£105-0-0), a painting of Lady Erroll and a copy of the same (£26-5-0 each), an alteration to the drapery of a painting (£5-5-0) and a packing case (ten shillings). With integral address leaf bearing a good red wax seal (small area of paper loss where originally opened). With a contemporary docket recording Wauchope's response to Reynolds, 'answ[ere]d that I could not promise but would be disappointed if the debt was not paid before the end of the year'. Some light age wear and a few small, neat tears, one only slightly affecting a few letters of the signature. About VG John Wauchope (1750-1828) Scottish solicitor, Writer to the Signet. James Hay (1726-1778) 15th Earl of Erroll. Scottish nobleman who served as Rector of the University of Glasgow 1761-63. Reynolds painted a full-length portrait of the Earl of Erroll in coronation robes and holding the baton of Lord High Constable of Scotland from the time Erroll officiated at the coronation of King George III in 1761. Reynolds's ledger records that Erroll sat for his portrait in March and April 1762 and that the fee was 100 guineas. As the present letter demonstrates, this bill was still outstanding at the time of the Earl's death in 1778 and was not settled until 1783.

Sir Joshua Reynolds, A Complete Catalogue of His Paintings, 2 vols, London: Yale University Press, 2000. Vol I, Text, p. 430; Vol II, Plates, p. 133 (fig. 365)Lady Catherine Standish (d.1780), née Catherine Frank, was born into the prominent Frank family of Pontefract, Yorkshire. Her mother, Elizabeth Lowther, was the daughter of Sir John Lowther Bt., M.P. for Westmoreland, and Catherine's father, Robert Frank MP (1660-1738), was active in borough politics and appointed Recorder for the Corporation of Pontefract in 1686. Although his appointment was contested several times during the dynastic and constitutional tumults of the late seventeenth century, he notably held office until his death in 1738, and served as an M.P. for the borough between 1710 and 1716. Frank was notably blacklisted as a 'Tory patriot' by the Hanoverians who held their crown by Whig support. Frank ensured that his daughter's marriages were advantageous and her first husband, John Smyth J.P. (1685-1731) of Heath Hall, Heath, was heir to a vast mercantile fortune. His father used this to cement their family's newfound place in the county gentry, purchasing the Heath estate near Wakefield and becoming 'the first squire of Heath.' His life was cut short however, and Catherine would soon remarry to Sir Thomas Standish of Duxbury, 2nd Baronet of Duxbury, becoming Lady Standish. However, it was through her daughter by her first marriage, née Elizabeth Smyth (b. 1727), that her acquaintance with Sir Joshua Reynolds was made. Elizabeth married Robert Ramsden of Osberton (1708-1769) in 1753, the fourth son of Sir William Ramsden, 2nd Bt. He was a captain in the British Army during the War of the Austrian Succession and served with distinction at the Battle of Dettingen on the 27th June 1743 and at the Battle of Fontenoy on the 11th May 1745. Robert was painted by Sir Joshua Reynolds in 1755, sitting to the artist on four occasions. The portrait, which depicts Ramsden in a 'plum-coloured coat,' on a 'luminous greeny-grey background' was likely the inspiration for the commissioning of this portrait by his mother-in-law three years later, for in 1758 Lady Standish would also sit for Reynolds four times. The resultant half-length portrait depicts her wearing a white dress and black wrap. A great experimenter with paint, Reynolds was hailed by his admirers and reviled by his critics. This portrait is typical of the artist's work of the 1750s when he developed the technique of 'dead colouring,' in which monochrome, or near monochrome, paint layers were used to create luminous flesh tones. That this technique is made explicit here makes this striking portrait a testament not only to the sitter's patronage, but also to the pioneering painter himself.

Gordon / Publish'd June 1st. 1789, by John & Josiah Boydell, No. 90, Cheapside, & at the Shakespeare Gallery, Pall Mall London.". Date: 1789 Description: Of particular charm is the depiction of Lady Frances Isabella Keir Gordon (1782-1831) after a painting by Joshua Reynolds. The unusual painting shows five different views of the head of the five-year-old only daughter of Lord William Gordon and his wife Frances Ingram-Shepherd. Joshua Reynolds took as compositional inspiration a red chalk drawing of four cherubic heads by the Italian artist Carlo Maratta (1625-1713), whose drawing skills he admired. The authenticity of the childlike being made childhood a motif of longing of the time. Reynolds, too, turned intensively to the study of childlike expression, its looks and gestures. He shows the girl in simple naturalness, in a work that is anything but formal or representative. Instead, he depicts one and the same child several times, and each of the heads shows a different expression that oscillates between amazement and thoughtfulness. Only once, in the lower part of the composition, does she look directly out of the picture - her attention briefly captured by the world beyond the frame. Beyond the individual, a universal image of the child is created. Frances Gordon's mother outlived her daughter by 10 years and after her death in 1841 she bequeathed the painting to the National Gallery. A work that remains in the memory long after it was first seen. Keywords: Engraving, Angel, Cherub, Child, Girl, Clouds, Wings, portrait, 18th century, Classicism, Portraits, United Kingdom,

It was commissioned by Sackville Tufton, 8th Earl of Thanet, and is now in a private collection.The Tufton family and Reynolds appear to have had a good relationship with the artist painting portraits of John Tufton's elder brothers, mother, and father's mistress. The Tufton family was prominent in cricket and other sporting activities. Between 1793 and 1798, Tufton was an active cricket player mainly associated with Marylebone Cricket Club. In 1796, at the age of 23 John Tufton became Member of Parliament for Appleby in Cumbria where the family lived. He held the seat until his premature death in 1799.

Date: 19th century Description: Sir Joshua Reynolds (1723 Plympton near Plymouth - 1792 London) was, along with William Hogarth and Thomas Gainsborough, the most famous and, through his artistic and theoretical work, the most influential English painter of the 18th century. He is counted among the "English school" of the 18th/19th century. In 1768 he became the first president of the newly founded Royal Academy of Arts. With his fine feeling for forms and arrangements, he created masterly portraits, such as the extremely intimate mother-child portrait presented here. While from today's perspective the execution of his history paintings is considered less successful, it is above all the intimate, private portraits that are convincing and are gaining in popularity.

                  Property of a Gentleman Sir Joshua Reynolds PRA (1723 - 1792) Mrs. Letitia Sparrow (née Popham) (1746 - 1838) Oil on canvas In a carved giltwood frame With labels and inscriptions verso Lot Essay: Reynolds' pocket books record five appointments in May 1766 for sittings with Mrs. Sparrow for this portrait. They took place on 14th May (at nine o'clock) 15th (at 3) 16th, 17th and 19th (all at 9). A payment of 35 guineas is recorded in the ledger on 6th June 1767. This accords with the price that Reynolds was charging for portraits of this size as noted in the front of a pocket book for 1764. Another of her family appears to have been painted by Reynolds the previous year. There is an appointment with a Mrs. Popham recorded for May 1765. Letitia Popham was the only daughter of Thomas Popham of Bagborough House, West Bagborough, Somerset and his wife Sara. This was a branch of the Popham family who had long been wealthy West Country landowners. The family's apogee was the appointment of Sir John Popham as Lord Chief Justice of England in 1592, a role in which he served under both Queen Elizabeth and King James. Letitia married James Sparrow (1742-1804), the sole surviving son of Francis Sparrow of Flax Bourton, Somerset, and his wife Sarah Smith of London, whom he had married in 1730. James and Letitia had two sons and eight daughters. She died in 1838 aged 92 and is buried at Long Ashton. The sitter is painted half-length, in a trompe l'oeil oval, wearing a blue gown trimmed with ermine over a chemise with a lace collar. An inscription on the back of the lining canvas reads: 'Loetitia Popham wife of James Sparrow Esq. of Flaxbourton, Somerset'. There is an old label at the bottom of the back of the frame which reads: 'Laetitia Popham sister of Alexander m. James Sparrow of Flaxbourton'. Provenance: By descent in the family of the sitter; Private collection, United Kingdom Literature: David Mannings, Sir Joshua Reynolds, a complete catalogue of his paintings, Vol.1.

                  Willem Hendrik Franquinet (1785 Maastricht - 1854 New York) after Joshua Reynolds (1723 Plymouth - 1792 London): Mother-daughter portrait with the daughter in her mother's arms, 19th century, Lithography Technique: Lithography on Paper Inscription: Signed below the image on the left and right. Date: 19th century Description: Sir Joshua Reynolds (1723 Plympton near Plymouth - 1792 London) was, along with William Hogarth and Thomas Gainsborough, the most famous and, through his artistic and theoretical work, the most influential English painter of the 18th century. He is counted among the "English school" of the 18th/19th century. In 1768 he became the first president of the newly founded Royal Academy of Arts. With his fine feeling for forms and arrangements, he created masterly portraits, such as the extremely intimate mother-child portrait presented here. While from today's perspective the execution of his history paintings is considered less successful, it is above all the intimate, private portraits that are convincing and are gaining in popularity.

                  (Plympton 1723–1792 London) Portrait of Margaret Scott (1740–1806), later Lady Montgomery, in a white dress, oil on canvas, 76.5 x 63 cm, framed Provenance: Collection of F. Dent; sale, Sotheby’s, London, 15 November 1959, lot 105; with Newhouse Galleries, New York; Collection of Harold Zellerbach (1894–1978); gifted by him in 1970 to the Palace of the Legion of Honour, San Francisco; sale, Sotheby’s, London, 7 June 2006, lot 162; Private collection, France The present portrait of a noblewoman, wearing a courtly robe of fine blue velvet, trimmed with ermine, is a typically refined work by the English School’s greatest practitioner Sir Joshua Reynolds. The sitter has been identified as Margaret Scott, later Lady Montgomery, the wife of Sir James Montgomery (1721–1803). Reynolds kept a Sitters’ Book, in which in February 1759 several sittings by a ‘Lady Scott’ are recorded, thus giving us a likely date of execution for the present work. Joshua Reynolds filtered the brilliance of the great Italian masters, such as Raphael, Michelangelo, Correggio and Titian, through his own artistic sensibilities, creating a unique style that is instantly recognisable. Born to humble origins, the son of a Plymouth schoolmaster, a chance introduction to Commodore Augustus Keppel, RN, enabled a formative voyage to Italy upon Keppel’s flagship, the HMS Centurion, allowing a sort of ‘poor man’s Grand Tour’ to the young painter. On his return to England in 1752 he rapidly established himself as a leading portraitist. The hallmarks of graceful poise and insinuations of power with which he imbued his sitters is on display in the present work.
