This fine pair of mid-19th-century companion portraits depict a splendidly-attired couple. He’s dressed in a dapper three-quarter length coat, waistcoat, shirt and cravat. While she wears an elegant bell-shaped dress with her hair centre-parted.
Both have knowing expressions and a misty depth behind their eyes. The artist has captured a sense of British romanticism and conveyed a bond to brace the centuries.
Housed within their original gilt frames and glazed.
