Other WORKS AT AUCTION
Description:
RICHARD WAITT (D 1732) PORTRAIT OF A NOBLEMAN bust length in richly embroidered scarlet coat, feigned oval, signed and dated Ri: Waitt pinxit 1717, oil on canvas, 72 x 62cm The sitter has traditionally been identified as James Ogilvy, 4th Earl of Findlater and 1st Earl of Seafield, KT, PC (1664-1730) Lord Chancellor of Scotland, 1702-1704 and 1705-07. A key figure in bringing about the Acts of Union 1706, by 1713 he had changed his mind and attempted to have the legislation repealed. Sir John Baptist de Medina's portrait of Ogilvy in the National Gallery of Scotland was painted in 1695, some 22 years before the present portrait which does not assist in confirming, or otherwise, the sitter's identity. John Macky (Memoirs of the Secret Services of John Macky.... by his son Spring Macky) described Ogilvy as "very beautiful in his person, with a graceful behaviour, smiling countenance, and a soft tongue." ++Lined probably in the earlier part of the 20th century with some old restoration and horizontal cracks and localised craqueleur where the pigments have darkened with age, the varnish dirty and requiring a clean. Some old repair and restoration beginning to show and probably reduced in size in late 19th/early 20th century. In gilt frame.

Description:
Richard Waitt (d. 1732) A Gardener holding a cabbage with a candle signed and dated 'Ric. Waitt pinxit 1731' (lower left) oil on canvas 30 x 25in. (76.2 x 63.5cm.) in an English 17th century carved and gilded Sunderland frame Lot Notes Little is known about the life of Scottish artist Richard Waitt. He is known to have married Margaret Freebairn in Edinburgh in April 1707, and in the following year was commissioned by the Earl of Hopetoun to paint the Earl's coat-of-arms at Abercorn Church. Waitt is thought to have studied under the prominent Scottish portrait painter John Scougall. He may have remained in Edinburgh until about 1716 working principally as a portrait painter. He painted a series of major portraits of relations and servants for Sir James Grant of Grant and worked for members of other branches of the Grant family. In 1730 Waitt was paid £30 for painting the arms of Great Britain in the Court House at Elgin. A still life by Waitt with cauliflowers, a ham and dead game birds, signed and dated 1724 is at Edinburgh. In the present lot the combination of Waitt's robust style of portraiture and characterisation are combined with his gift for still life. The frame pattern largely corresponds to that adopted by the 2nd Earl of Sunderland for the collection of portraits at Althorp, Northamptonshire (P. Mitchell, Frameworks, London, 1996 pl. 43).
