What sort of value would an original Sir Lawrence pastel…

Customer Question
What sort of value...

What sort of value would an original Sir Thomas Lawrence pastel painting fetch? There is a message inscribed by the artist himself on the back of the frams.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

The actual painting is about 15" tall in an oval frame, painted in 1785 I believe, of Lady Charlotte Finch, governess to the King George III's children.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

I don't think so.

Hi I have found the following information on the painting. Thank you for your patience. I wanted to give you the following information if you werent able to provide a photo so you have a general idea of values. Thank you for coming to just answer and if I may be of further help please let me know.

At 15" oval portrait framed has a value of 4500-5500.00 in todays market of Lady Charlotte Finch, governess to the King George III's children.

Lady Charlotte Finch ( 14 February 1725 – 11 July 1813) served as royal governess to the children of King George III and Queen Charlotte for over thirty years, holding the position from 1762 to 1793.

If you are looking for insurance value to have this insured it would have an insured value of 6800.00 in todays value.

Thomas (Sir) Lawrence

Born: 1769 - Bristol, England
Died: 1830 - London, England
Known for: portrait painting

________________________________

Sir Thomas Lawrence was born in England in 1769. At the age of five he began selling crayon likenesses to the patrons of his father's tavern in Bristol; at twenty, he was the rage of London and at fifty he had painted most of Europe's royalty. He never lost a sitter because of an unflattering likeness. Reynolds had a great deal of influence on Lawrence, but with him the master's smoothness and graciousness became all too often softness and insipidity.

His most famous painting, "Pinkie", a child-portrait of genuine charm and dignity, is the very essence of English art of the Regency. The subject was Sarah Moulton-Barrett whose brother Edward was to become the notorious domestic tyrant whose daughter Elizabeth Barrett achieved immortality as poet and the wife of ***** *****ing.

Lawrence's male portraits were almost uniformly distinguished but he was principally a painter of women. In 1815 he was knighted and he became president of London's Royal Academy in 1820. He died in 1830.
