Description:
Charles Jervas (Irish, circa 1675-1739) Portrait of Sir Robert Walpole (1676-1745) 1st Earl of Orford, seated, three-quarter length, in Chancellor's Robes, wearing the Insignia of the Order of the Bath and with the embroidered silk purse of the Chancellor's Seal seen on a table beside him inscribed in a later hand lower left "Sir Robert Walpole KG / Earl of Orford / Chancellor of the Exchequeur / Obit. March 18.1745/6 / Aged 69" oil on canvas, in a very fine carved and giltwood contemporary English frame 124 x 100cm (48 x 39in) Provenance: Presumably one of the portraits commissioned by Susan Hamond (fl. 1687-1763), Sir Robert Walpole's sister, in 1725 from Charles Jervas [Vouchers 1725 (Bundle) Cholmondeley (Houghton Papers), Cambridge University Library] and thence by descent at Westacre High House, Norfolk from 1761 when the Hamonds moved there from nearby South Wootton; and thence by descent to the present owner Other Notes: Sir Robert Walpole, born at Houghton, educated at Eton and King's College, Cambridge and who is considered England's first "Prime Minister", was one of this country's greatest statesmen. He was a Member of Parliament for over forty years from 1701-1742. He was Secretary of War from 1708 - 1710; Treasurer of the Navy from 1710 - 1711; he was expelled from the House of Commons after the Whig downfall of 1712 and committed to the Tower of London on spurious charges. On the Party's return to power, he became both First Lord of the Treasury and Chancellor of the Exchequer from 1715 -1717 and again from 1721 -1742. He revived the Order of the Bath in 1725, in which both he and his son (see Lot 394) were installed and the following year he became a Knight of the Garter. In the late 1730s both his policies and person were increasingly under attack. Following his defeat in the House of Commons, Walpole resigned all his employments and was created Earl of Orford. Walpole was an important art collector - and it was probably due to his influence that Jervas was appointed the King's Principal Painter in 1723. Sir John Plumb, in his book "Sir Robert Walpole, The King's Minister", Volume 2, The Cresset Press, pub. 1960, explains how Walpole always took great pride in having his Bath and Garter Stars painted onto already existing portraits. In 1725, Walpole had been instrumental in persuading George I to reintroduce the Order of the Bath. It is as a Knight of the Bath, with its crimson sash, that Walpole is shown here. This portrait - and that of his first wife, Catherine Shorter, (see Lot 393) - are most probably those referred to in the single surviving document in the Walpole Papers {Vouchers 1725 (Bundle) Cholmondeley (Houghton Papers), Cambridge University Library} which records Jervas' association with Sir Robert. Dated 20 October 1725, Jervas was providing Susan Hamond, Walpole's sister, with framed portraits of Sir Robert and Lady Walpole, presumably to commemorate his recent restoration of, and elevation to, the Order of the Bath. Susan Hamond is the direct ancestor of the present owner. A version of the present picture, subsequent to its sale at Sotheby's (23 November 2006, Lot 36) claimed the Birkbeck (via Susan Hamond) provenance, that this pair have a more convincing claim to, since they come by direct descent from Susan Hamond who is recorded as paying Jervas for portraits of Walpole and his wife. The present portrait will be included in Caroline Pegum's forthcoming catalogue raisonne on Charles Jervas. Lovely English frame - matches that of Lady Walpole. Crested piece missing to the top of Sir Robert's frame. Oil on canvas which has been lined. The canvas tension is good and the picture is in plane. The paint layer is in a stable condition with a regular age craquelure pattern. The varnish is matte and dull with an uneven gloss surrounding the age cracks. There is a layer of surface dirt and some fly spots. The frame is missing the decorative moulding at the upper corners.
