All of this makes me very happy to be a customer again in the future.' Georgian Toilet Mirror. Customer in Australia .. ''Breathtakingly beautiful Mahogany toilet mirror !

Description
This is a fine and large Oil Painting of the Prince of Wales, later George Iv of England. After Sir William Beechey Ra Sir William Beechey painted his original portrait of The Prince of Wales wearing a uniform of the Tenth Light Dragoons, with the star of the Order of the Garter, as his diploma work for the Royal Academy. It was accepted in 1798 and remains part of their collection. Other versions of the portrait are known to have been painted at the time - The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York (The Met) has one, and The Royal Collection in London has a later version painted at the Princes request by Beechey in 1803. This version does not have a traceable provenance so is being sold as a 19th Century copy although I continue to research its possible origins Comparisons. A comparison of the facial likenesses of 3 versions of this painting is interesting. See photo. The 1803 painting in the Royal Collection clearly shows an older, more mature likeness of the Prince than that exhibited for The Royal Academy in 1798. This version for sale, if anything, presents a slightly more youthful Prince than the 1798 version.

declaration

Middleton's Antiques has clarified that the Prince of Wales, George IV. Oil on Canvas. After Sir William Beechey RA (LA429580) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being 19th Century

condition

The painting looks to have been relined previously, and the stretcher frame it had was a later replacement. This was damaged, and the joints to the frame broken when I received the painting so I have had the stretcher frame renewed again. The canvas is in good undamaged condition and has been lightly cleaned by a professional art restorer.
