Sir Thomas Lawrence, P.R.A. VENUS ARRANGING HERSELF AFTER THE BATH BRISTOL 1769 - 1830 LONDON Black and red chalks, heightened with white; inscribed on the backboard: Venus arranging herself /after the bath / original sketch by / Sir Thomas Lawrence R.A. / Purchased by Major General / The Honble Sir Charles Greville / at the sale of Sir T. Lawrence’’’’’’’’s Drawings after his death / LSK 305 by 216 mm; 12 1/8 by 8 1/2 in Provenance According to the inscription, London, Christie's, A Catalogue of The Remaining Pictures and Unfinished Sketches of Sir Thomas Lawrence, 18 June 1831, unknown lot number; Major General, the Hon. Sir Charles Greville, K.C.B. (1780-1836); Mistress Macgregor of Cardney, Perthshire; with J.E. Dell’’’’’’’’s, Brighton; purchased by the family of the current owner in the 1920s Catalogue Note It has been suggested that Lawrence created this ravishing drawing and the following lot, in around 1789, when he was a young man of no more than twenty years of age. By this time, Lawrence had moved from Bath to London and his draughtsmanship was being celebrated as ‘outstripping all his fellow students.’’’’’’’’1 With great finesse and sensitivity Lawrence has brought Venus, with her long hair and soft skin, to life. However, rather than working from a life model, it would appear that the pose was inspired by a classical sculpture. Three versions of this sculpture are known: one was recorded as being in Rome, another was in Amsterdam in the collection of Gerrit Uylenburgh (1625-1679) and a third was owned by Sir Peter Lely (1618-1680) in London.2 These sculptures are now believed lost, although, in the mid 17th century, Jan de Bisschop made three drawings and two engravings from one of them.3 There is also a third drawing by Lawrence of this figure (seen in the same pose as the present work) at the Yale Center for British Art. According to an early inscription on the backboards of both the present and following lots, the drawings were acquired by Major General, the Hon. Sir Charles Greville at Lawrence’’’’’’’’s posthumous studio sale in June 1831. Greville, a career soldier and Member of Parliament, was the second surviving son of George, 2nd Earl of Warwick. The Greville family had been steeped in the art world since the early 18th century. Sir Charles’’’’’’’’ grandfather, the 1st Earl, was a patron of Canaletto, his own father, the 2nd Earl, was an amateur artist, while his uncle, the Hon. Charles Francis Greville, was credited with bringing the secret of aquatint to England. We would like to thank Susan Sloman for her help in cataloging this lot. 1. M.

Garlick, Sir Thomas Lawrence, Oxford, 1989, p. 135, no. 20. Lot Notes Eleanor Brandram (1789-1866) was the daughter of Samuel Brandram of Lee, Kent. A woman of exceptional beauty, in 1815 she became the second wife of John Allnutt (1773-1863) of Clapham common. The present portrait, which Kenneth Garlick dates to c. 1815, was likely commissioned around the time of their wedding (loc. cit., 1989). Eleanor has the vivacious countenance of a young woman in her mid-twenties. She gazes out at the viewer with confident, piercing blue eyes and a spray of flowers in her hair. Sir Thomas Lawrence lavished special attention of the depiction of Mrs. Allnutt’’’’s crimson velvet dress, which appears all the more vivid set against the cool blues of the background. The artist would have been inclined to produce his best work, as her husband was a discerning art collector and patron of Lawrence as well as many of his contemporaries, including Constable and Turner. Years earlier, in 1797-1798 Lawrence captured Mr. Allnutt’’’’s likeness in a full-length portrait with a horse in a landscape, which was sold at Christie’’’’s, London, on 16 April 1982, lot 91 (fig. 1). A wine merchant by profession, John Allnutt lent large sums of money to Lawrence, secured on a policy of insurance: as much as £5,000 was, it is said, repaid at Lawrence's death.
