This beautiful mid-19th-century group portrait by British artist Frederick Cruickshank (1800-1868) depicts a father, mother and their two daughters within an interior setting.

It’s a charming snapshot of a loving family.

The outfits date to around 1860 with the female sporting an impressive bell-shaped skirt, probably supported by hoops. While he wears an appropriately fashionable coat and carries a top hat. Can you imagine how the family felt in the build-up to this portrait? The girls chatting excitedly, the mother eager to present the right image. I’m sure they were delighted with the result.

Cruickshank had been exhibiting regularly at the Royal Academy for almost 40 years when this was produced.

Housed within a good later frame and glazed.

Conservation & History

We care profoundly about our role as custodians and every piece in the collection has been assessed by our conservator. When required, we undertake professional restoration carefully using reversible techniques and adopt a light touch to retain the aged charm of each work. We also restore frames rather than replace them as many are original and selected by the artists themselves.
