This is a copy of an original entitled A Child's Portrait in Different Views 'Angel's Heads' and was painted in 1786-7. This was several views of the head of the 5 year old Lady Frances Isabella Keir Gordon (1782-1831) who sat for Reynolds in July and August 1786 and again in March 1787, the year in which it was exhibited. She was the only daughter of Lord William Gordon and his wife Frances Ingram (1761-1841), on whose death in 1841 it was bequeathed to the National Gallery. It is now on view at Tate Britain.
I am thrilled to have secured the purchase of this wonderful antique oil painting.
I have a number of watercolours too of interest to 17th and 18th-century collectors.
