Description
This finely executed portrait of the Quaker Robert Ring in pastel and charcoal, would date to circa 1790. It is rare to find portraits of Quakers so it is wonderful to have this example. It sits in what looks like its original gilt wooden frame with Verre églomisé Mount and verso about the sitter on the back. When I found the portrait it came with a note which I imagine would date to the 1970's identifying the sitter as Robert Ring, as well as advising how this portrait came onto the market in the 1960s after the Meeting House of the Bristol Quakers was sold to The Bristol Corporation and subsequently on to auction.
