Description: Follower of Antonio David (Italian, 1698-1750) "Prince Charles Edward Stuart, 'Bonnie Prince Charlie' (1720-1788)", ca. 1730-1745 oil on canvas unsigned, painted after the original commissioned in Rome in 1732 by his father, James, son of the exiled Stuart King James II and VII. Framed. 28-1/2" x 24" Notes: Charles Edward Stuart, known by the sobriquet Bonnie Prince Charlie, grew up in exile in Rome with his father, James Francis Edward Stuart, the heir apparent to James II and VII, King of England, Ireland and Scotland. James was exiled as an infant after King James was deposed in the Glorious Revolution of 1668, and his older Protestant half-sister Mary II and her husband William III of Orange were declared Queen and King. Despite two attempted coups d'etat in 1715 and 1745, neither father nor son was able to reclaim the throne, and remained in Rome. In 1729, James Stuart commissioned the Jacobite (Catholic) court artist Antonio David to paint portraits of his sons Charles and Henry. As the eldest, and heir apparent should the Catholic faction be restored, there was great demand for copies of the young hopeful monarch, Bonnie Prince Charlie. David and his workshop executed several copies, making it difficult to discern the" original". The Scottish National Gallery has a 1732 portrait also by David that matches the exact measurements of the one offered here, and the National Portrait Gallery in London has a slightly smaller 1729 one from the studio of David. The "copy" in the Blairs Museum was brought to Scotland in the early 18th century from Abbe Peter Grant, and another, painted by the circle of David and gifted (by repute) by King James and Maria Sobieska, recently sold at Lyon & Turnbull in London for $63,000. Numerous as the copies are, period works, such as these, are highly coveted rarities at auction.

Antonio David
(Venice 1698–1750 Rome)

Portrait of an artistocratic lady,

signed on the reverse: Longhi,

oil on paper, mounted on canvas, 29.9 x 23.5 cm, framed

We are grateful to Dr Arabella Cifani, who has identified the present painting as an autograph work by the artist and for having written an extensive analysis, which accompanies the present lot.

The present portrait shows a noble lady in rich robes with sumptuous jewelry and pearl corsage. It shows meticulous attention to detail in the Rococo-like hairstyle with pearls and a feather inserted through her hair. The female sitter is certainly of high rank whereas the pearls allude perhaps to a wedding. The features of the lady are very close to those of the beautiful and unlucky Princess Maria Clementina Sobieski and a comparison with known portraits proves to be particularly indicative. Maria Clementina was born in Poland on 18 July 1702, as the daughter of James Louis Sobieski and Countess Palatine Hedwig Elisabeth of Neuburg. Her marriage to James Francis Edward Stuart, 'The Old Pretender', was intended to bring wealth because Mary was one of the richest heiresses in Europe.

As to the attribution to David, in her written report Dr Cifani convincingly compares the present portrait with another painting attributed to David in The Walter's Art Museum in Baltimore, present in the photo library of Federico Zeri, which depicts the lady with a treatment of the face and robe very similar to that of the woman in the present painting.
