Description

Circle of William Hogarth (London 1697-1764) Portrait of a young girl, half-length, seated, in a white dress, a King Charles spaniel on her lap, in an ornamental park, with a hill-top castle beyond oil on canvas 47¾ x 38¼ in. (121.4 x 97.2 cm.)
with Leger Galleries, London, as William Hogarth. Anonymous sale; Sotheby’s, London, 12 April 1995, lot 47, as William Hogarth, unsold. Anonymous sale; Christie’s, London, 14 November 1997, lot 26 (£34,500). Anonymous sale; Christie’s, New York, 24-25 January 2001, lot 502 ($30,550), where acquired by the present owner.
This particularly sensitive and elegant image was executed circa 1750. Comparable to Hogarth’s own production of the 1740s (see, for instance, The Graham Children in the National Gallery, London), the present work was considered to be by Hogarth himself until the mid-1990s. Certainly it was executed by an artist who was fully aware of Hogarth’s work, whose interest centered on the direct observation of the sitter, and whose handling of the draperies recalls Hogarth’s own freedom in the treatment of such details.
