Charles Jervas (County Offaly, Ireland 1675 - 1739 London)

Oil on canvas, c. 1720

in a fine late eighteenth-century gilt hollow frame with carved pea-shot and bead-and-reel mouldings

 

This fine portrait was painted in the reign of George I, to whom Jervas became court painter in 1723 following the death of Sir Godfrey Kneller, Jervas’ former master.  His work is well represented in museums, including the National Portrait Galleries of England and Ireland, with portraits of the literati of the day, including Jonathan Swift and Alexander Pope (whom Jervas taught painting), as well as society figures such as Henrietta Howard, Countess of Suffolk, mistress to King George II, and Lady Mary Wortley Montagu.Portrait of a Lady
