Pair of Rare 18th Century Paintings

Reference No. : 0599


A superb pair of 18th Century paintings, each depicting the portrait of a son of Lord Admiral Smith.

What makes the pair so unusual is that one son is mixed race. The fact that the Admiral, a respected man in 18th Century England, would have celebrated a son of colour at this time is almost unheard of in our history. On top of this unusual background, both pieces are in their completely original, untouched, condition.

We are very excited by them.
