A Lady by Livesay

A portrait of Charlotte Hagard, wife of John Manning Esq, painted in 1781 by Richard Livesay, 'a pupil of Hogarth'. Oil on canvas and within the original gilt-wood sunburst spandrel with outer gilt-gesso moulding frame.
Richard Livesay was born in 1753 and entered the RA Schools in 1774 as a draughtsman. He lived in the house of Hogarth's widow between 1777 and 1785 making copies of Hogarth's work and producing engravings of his works. He was later to become a pupil of Benjamin West and then his assistant. He taught drawing to the children of the Royal Family and exhibited extensively at the RA between 1776 and 1821 (69). From 1796 he was drawing master at the Royal Naval College, Portsea, where he died in 1826.

Walpoles is an antiques business that has been established for more than 35 years with an extensive stock which can be divided into three broad themes: "The Army" encompassing colonial furniture and works of art, folk art of the British soldier as well as campaign furniture, pictures and objects of a military theme; "The Navy" covering fine and folk art associated with the British Royal and Merchant Navy fleets as well as fine art and objects that fall under a title of "The China Trade"; and finally there is an established core of furniture, pictures and works of art typical of "The English Country House".

Founded by Graham Walpole, the business first set up in Church Street, in London’s Marylebone, and by the end of the 1980s had moved to Westbourne Grove, from where they dealt until the turn of the last century. In 2004 Walpoles relocated to their home town of Greenwich and joined the British Antiques Dealers Association but now work from 111 Portobello Road.
