Portrait of Charles Jarvis
Oil on canvas
30 x 25 inches (76.2 x 63.5 cm)
Note: The "Charles Jarvis" identified on the label on the frame of this work is not the Irish portraitist also known as Charles Jervas, who died in 1739. Based on the style of the wig, this portrait appears to represent a young man of the 1750s. We are grateful to Caroline Pegum of the National Portrait Gallery, London, for this information.


Estimate: $800 - $1,200
Sold for $625 (includes buyer's premium)
