A Military Attack

A Military Attack painted by Samuel John Egbert Jones, the faces of both the dog and the young lady tell us much of this picture's story. Signed by the artist on the bench lower right, painted in oil on canvas and within the original or period gilt gesso frame. Labels to the reverse confirm the title and artist, the lower giving the provenance as being with Walker Galleries, New Bond Street, 1956 and stating that 'This painting has been engraved by W.C. Geller.'
o.s:29.5 in x 25.75 in
S.J.E. Jones was an artist of considerable talent and output but little is known about him.
He is recorded as an exhibitor at the Royal Academy in 1820, from an address in Mile End, East London, the painting being a portrait of 'An Old Mare' which he showed on another occasion, in 1824, at the British Institute. From 1830 he had moved to Bartholomew Lane, Bank. Two of his sketch books are held at the British Museum and from various notes we learn that he considered landscape painting to be of foremost importance; his trees and foreground shrubs are invariably well and classically painted. From these note books we also learn that Jones worked in places as far apart as Derbyshire, Kent, Sussex, North Wales and North Somerset. At least 20 of his works were engraved and published; his last recorded work is dated 1849.

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.
