Description:
James Maubert (Ireland 1666-1746 London) Portrait of Catherine Sancroft (c. 1716-1780) and her sister Elizabeth (1714-1788), full-length, the former in a blue dress holding a spaniel, the latter in a yellow dress holding a bowl of flowers, before a draped curtain, a park landscape beyond signed 'J: Maubert; Pinxit.' (lower left) oil on canvas 48 x 56¾ in. (122 x 144 cm.) (Probably) commissioned by the sitter's father, William Sancroft (1683-1720), and by descent to Elizabeth's daughter, Sarah Wogan, wife of the Reverend Gervas Holmes, Vicar of Fressingfield, and by descent to John Sancroft Holmes, Gawdy Hall, Norfolk, by 1913. Anonymous sale; Bonhams, Knightsbridge, 16 December 1998, lot 6 (£31,000). Anonymous sale; Sotheby's, London, 30 June 2005, lot 40 (£57,600 to the present owner). THE PROPERTY FROM A DISTINGUISHED PRIVATE COLLECTION (LOT 52) Prince Duleep Singh, Portraits in Norfolk Houses, I, 1927, p. 24, illustrated. The sitters were the daughters of William Sancroft of Fressingfield Hall, Suffolk, and his wife, Catherine, daughter of Sir John Cotton of Lenwade. William's great uncle, William Sancroft (1617-1693) was the Dean of St Paul's who assisted significantly with the rebuilding of the Cathedral after the Great Fire of London and later became Archbishop ofCanterbury. The two daughters were substantial heiresses, having inherited from their father the Suffolk manors of Fressingfield, Ufford, Chepenhall and Metfield. The eldest daughter Elizabeth married John Wogan, who came from a Pembrokeshire family and owned Gawdy Hall in Norfolk. On the death of Elizabeth and her husband, the Suffolk estates were sold and Gawdy Hall passed to the Reverend Gervas Holmes, Vicar of Fressingfield, who had married their daughter, Sarah. This double portrait is a fine example of the artist's work and can be compared with his portrait of the Bathurst family, c.1714 (sold Sotheby's, London, 23 June 1971, lot 90). Vertue noted that Maubert was 'a good Ingenious civil man ... he not only paints from the Life but is very skillful in painting of fruits & flowers. his draperys are well dispos'd & natural' (G. Vertue, 'Note Books', III, Walpole Society, XXII, 1933-1934, p. 28).

Description:
Oil on canvas, 155 x 173cm (62 x 69") Signed Provenance:Robert and Ann Smith, their daughter,Lydia Challoner, her niece,Katherine Bisse, Katherine````s son, Thomas Chaloner, Bisse Challoner of Portnall Park,Egham Henry Jerome de Salis, brother-in-law of the above through Thomas````s second wife, Henrietta De Salis.Thence by descent through the De Salis family James Maubert is thought to have been born in France in 1666 but if not a native of Ireland he, at least, resided here early in his life. Vertue recorded that Gaspar Smitz provided him with his 'first instructions in drawing and painting' in Dublin. Smitz was a Flemish artist who had come to England shortly after the Restoration. He was described by Strickland as a portrait painter who also painted still life studies of fruit and flowers. He was in Dublin apparently from the mid 1660's until his death in 1707. Maubert, armed with his portraitist training, moved to London where he established a successful career as a portrait painter. The chief influences on his style are clearly Sir Godfrey Kneller and Michael Dahl. The present work portrays four of the daughters and the son of Robert Smith and his wife Ann. Robert Smith is believed to have been a London Merchant and it is thought that he married around 1705, dating the painting to around 1718. Vertue noted that Maubert 'mightily adorned his pictures with flowers, honeysuckles, etc.' and indeed it seems as if the honeysuckle is his favorite flower as it appears regularly in large portrait groups such as this one. Gaspar Smitz's interest and ability in painting flowers certainly left it's mark on Maubert and he regularly featured flowers in his paintings.
