Leggatt) With Leggatt Brothers, London With Gooden and Fox, London Literature C.H. Collins Baker, British Painting, London, 1933, opposite p. 96, pl. 61 (incorrectly identified as 'Sir Francis Burdett') E.M. Johnson, Francis Cotes: Complete Edition with a Critical Essay and a Catalogue, London, 1976, pp. 84-85, no. 214, ill. fig. 62 Sir Robert Burdett, 4th Baronet, was the posthumous son of Sir Robert Burdett, 3rd Baronet of Bramcote Warwickshire, and his wife the Hon. Elizabeth, daughter of William Tracy, 4th Viscount Tracy. His grandfather had died four months before his father so Burdett succeeded the baronetcy at his birth. Having completed his education at New College, Oxford, he served as High Sheriff of Derbyshire and then, in 1748, he was returned as Member of Parliament for Tamworth, a position he held for the next 20 years. In 1759, Robert Burdett commissioned the London architect David Hiorns to design Foremarke Hall in Derbyshire intended as a stately home for his son, Francis Burdett. The present portrait was executed by Francis Cotes at a point when his work was very much in demand. In 1767, two years after he was appointed Director of the Society of Artists, Cotes completed two royal commissions in oil - Queen Charlotte with Charlotte, Princess Royal (Royal Collection inv. no. 452805) and Princess Louisa and Princess Caroline (Royal Collection inv. no. 404334) - and was also charged by Sir Robert Burdett to carry out portraits of his family. Two three-quarter length depictions of his son (Francis Burdett, 1743-1794) and his daughter (Elizabeth, died 1804) were sold in these rooms on 6 December 2006, lots 38 and 39, the latter signed and also dated 1767. Cotes also portrayed Burdett's first wife, Elizabeth, daughter of Charles Sedley, in the same year and the portrait was sold by the 7th Baronet in 1953, at the same time as the current work. The following year, 1768, Cotes was invited to become one of the founder members of the Royal Academy but died just two years later aged 44.
