Circle of Thomas Hickey

Portrait of Francis Nevil (d.1756)

Oil on canvas; oval in a giltwood frame; inscribed verso.

Dimensions refer to size of frame.

Thomas Hickey was a prolific portraitist to the soldiers, civil servants and merchants of colonial British India and is particularly known for his small scale, elegant oval portraits. His style of portraiture became popular with the landed gentry and was influential amongst many practising painters of the late 18th century. This particular portrait is painted by an artist who has clearly adopted Hickey’s approach being both a spirited and characterful portrayal of the sitter.

Reference 1492
