Willmot, 135 Newtown Road, Malvern; Christie's, London, 7 December 1951, lot 107, as 'Portrait of Miss Flora Bellasis, in an Indian dress of a Parsee girl', (18 guineas to the present owner). Exhibited London, Royal Academy, 1844, no. 263, as 'Miss Flora Bellasis in an Indian dress of a Parsee girl.' Lot Notes Flora Bellasis (1823-1871) was the daughter of Daniel Hutchins Bellasis (1785-1836), Colonel of Infantry in the Bombay Army, and Mary (1786-1862), daughter of Lance Tadman of New House, Gravesend, Kent, and widow of William Jolliffe Eldridge, Major of the Bombay European Regiment who died at Poona on 7 October 1818. Flora's grandfather, John Bellasis (1743-1808), was Major-General and Commander-in-Chief of the East India Company, and had also been based in Bombay, first establishing the family's importance within Colonial India. The Parsi community in and around Bombay was particularly prosperous at the time, working closely in connection with government and public works organised by the East India Company, and Flora Bellasis is likely to have chosen Parsi costume for the present portrait as a reference to her family's connections to India. It was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1844 when she was just 21. In 1852 she married Admiral Richard Aldworth Oliver (1811-1889) at St. Marylebone church, Middlesex. The portrait was one of the eight works exhibited by the artist at the Royal Academy in 1844, the year of his death. Notably, one of the others was of John Skinner, 'A study for a large picture painted for the Chamber of Commerce, Bombay' (no.402). The contents of Geddes' studio were auctioned at Christie's on 8-12 April 1845.

Description:
Andrew Geddes (1783-1844) The Approaching Storm signed with monogram 'AG' (lower right) oil on canvas 12 x 18½ in. (30.5 x 47 cm.) Provenance with Colnaghi Ltd., London. Sir James Hunter Blair, 7th bt., by 1961. Literature D. & F. Irwin, Scottish Painters: At Home and Abroad , London, 1975, p.199, pl.III. F. Russell, 'Confidence and Taste: The Blairquhan Collection', Country Life , 14 August 1986, p.502. Exhibited Edinburgh, National Gallery of Scotland, Andrew Geddes 1783-1844, Painter-printmaker, 'A Man of Pure Taste' , 15 February - 29 April 2001, no.1. Lot Notes The present work was probably painted around 1810. Geddes was particularly interested in capturing the transitory effects of nature in his landscape paintings. David and Francina Irwin have noted that the present work shows the stylistic influence of such old masters as Rembrandt and Rubens; indeed, Geddes owned an etching by Rembrandt of The Three Trees , and the Irwins comment that The Approaching Storm 'recalls Rembrandt's effect of a passing shower in this etching' ( op. cit. ).
