Splendid pair of large early 19th.c. portraits in oil on canvas c.1835. Reputedly of Alexander McBarnet and his wife Sophia, shown in half length seated poses. Alexander McBarnet (d.1838) was a Scottish landowner who also held estates in the West Indies. He was a member of the Council of St Vincent and is shown here holding a copy of the St Vincent Gazette. Wearing a black frockcoat, high collared white shirt and black necktie typical of the era, he is rather overshadowed by the extraordinary costume worn by his wife. Exuberantly a la mode, she is shown a magnificent white feather plume hat with, her hair in long curled bangs framing the face, rouged cheeks and wearing in a blue silk gown with lace sleeves. With a fine lace shawl and an impressive display of jewellery with a suite of gold and emerald earrings, star shaped brooch and pair of bracelets. Apparently unsigned, the artist is unfortunately unrecorded. Presented unframed in good condition, with some repairs, and laid onto later canvas stretchers.
Dimensions: width 28″, height 36″.
