Edmund Lilly (fl. from c. 1695 and died 1716) was the favoured portrait painter of Queen Anne (1665-1714) and she commissioned to paint numerous portraits of her and her family - choosing him over both his, possibly better known, contemporaries, Godfrey Kneller and Michael Dahl. Often Lilly was requested to produce a second version of these portraits for leading members of the nobility English painter. This portrait of the Queen’s short-lived only son, Prince William, Duke of Gloucester is such an example, with a version in Windsor Castle.
Prince William, was the last recognised heir of the Stuart dynasty. Although he died at the age of eleven, soon after this portrait was painted, his brief life assumed an immense political importance. In the face of the omnipresent threat posed by the Catholic Stuart, or ‘Jacobite’, claimants to the English throne, there was an almost desperate need for a crop of healthy heirs to continue the Protestant Stuart succession. Anne, James II’s daughter, came under enormous pressure to breed, particularly after the death of her childless sister Queen Mary II. Sadly, of her eighteen pregnancies, only one child, William, survived beyond the age of one.
William, then, was the monarchy’s great Protestant hope and was regularly presented to the press and public as the government sought to create a popular identity for him. This portrait would have been part of that effort.
Despite his poor health, William’s death from smallpox came as a political shock. The government’s response, as they scrambled to find an acceptable Protestant heir, was to pass the 1701 Act of Settlement, one of the most important documents in the English constitution. The Act, by requiring all monarchs to be Protestant, and settling the throne on the Hanoverian descendants of Electress Sophia, granddaughter of James I, excluded the Catholic Stuart line. It also led to the effective creation of the Kingdom of Great Britain.
 
The portrait is for sale and currently on display

Gallery outing to see the fantastic “Lucian Freud - New Perspectives” exhibition

1. Man with a feather (self-portrait), 1943. This early portrait shows Freud’s interest in small delicate detail, eg the brickwork on the house – very different to his use of thick impasto paint (a style for which he is probably better known).

2. David Hockney, 2002. In 2002, two titans of British art came together in a private exchange between artist and sitter. After more than a hundred hours of sittings, this portrait of David Hockney provides a fascinating window into the narrative of a long episodic friendship that had started forty years earlier.

3. Large interior, Notting Hill, 1998. Due to the model running late (Freud wasn’t a very patient artist!), her head was replaced by that of the artist’s male assistant, which explains how a man is caught in the act of breastfeeding.

4. The Brigadier, 2003-4. This huge portrait depicts an English military man in full regalia, metals proudly on his chest. Steeped in the traditions of military portrayals, this is a resolutely contemporary painting by Freud’s legendary attention to detail and lucid brushstrokes. It evokes the spirit of the grand military portraits that populate art history, notably the luscious red stripe which is so evocative of Manet.

5. Double portrait, 1985-6. A lovely moment caught of Freud’s daughter and their whippet Pluto.

“I declare before you all that my whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service”. Queen Elizabeth II (1926-2022).

We are very sad to hear the news of the death of Her Majesty the Queen.

Not only the longest ruling Monarch in British history, but a much loved and respected figure across the globe and those artists who had the honour to paint her, all commented on what a warm, welcoming and wise woman she was.

RIP

Two works by Norman Hepple currently on show in our Royal Portraits exhibition. The exhibition runs until 8 July at 19 Ryder Street, St James’s

1. HRH Duke of Edinburgh (study), 1960
red chalk on paper
16 x 10 in (40.6 x 25.4 cm)

It is likely that this study was produced around the same time as Hepple’s accomplished sketch portrait of the Duke of Edinburgh, which was exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in 1960.

2. Her Majesty The Queen (study), 1977
pastel on paper
20 x 16 in (50.8 x 40.6 cm)

In 1977 The States of Jersey commission Hepple to paint a portrait of Her Majesty The Queen. The finished portrait, now hanging in the Jersey States Chamber, was added to the banknotes issued on the island from 1989 - 2010.

This work is one of the studies produced by the artist for this commission.

The Royal Company of Archers commissioned to paint a portrait of Her Majesty The Queen in 2016 to mark her 90th Birthday. She is wearing the robes of The Most Ancient and Most Noble Order of the Thistle and is standing at the top of the staircase in Archers’ Hall. On the left is the marble bust of Sir Walter Scott, by Sir Francis Chantrey RA, whose energy and determination helped to establish a ceremonial role for The Royal Company for the visit to Scotland by King George IV in 1822. Behind the bust are The Colours of The Royal Company which were presented by The Queen in 1966.
