    Sold

    Half-length wearing a white dress

    Pastel, oval

    30. 5 by 20.3 cm., 12 ¼ by 8 in.

     

    Provenance:

    By descent from the sitter to Dr Humphrey Arthure until at least 1964

     

    Literature:

    Kenneth Garlick, `A Catalogue of the Paintings, Drawings and Pastels of Sir Thomas Lawrence’, Walpole Society, 1964, vol. XXXIX, p.263;

    Neil Jeffares, Dictionary of Pastellists before 1800, p.320 as untraced

     

    This is typical of Lawrence's pastel all of which date to pre 1790 and which tend to measure the same size. His usual inscription on the reverse is barely legible: `Be pleased to keep from the damp and the sun.'

     

    Anne Bloxham (1766-1835) was the artist's sister and married the Revd. Richard Rouse Bloxam in 1796. He was Assistant Master of Rugby School for 38 years. Another portrait of her by Lawrence drawn when he was only 12 is in the British Museum (1885.0613.90).
