Two labels from Newhouse Galleries, New York are attached to back to the cardboard backing with title and artist and inventory number #15404. His portrait is described in “Dames of High Degree” by Thomson Willing as “Her portrait by Hoppner, done in his best period, was painted in 1794, and has become one of this painter’s most famous works. It was engraved by Charles Wilkin and was issued in the series of plates entitled, ” A Select Series of Ladies of Rank and Fashion.” The painter had the reputation of investing his sitters with an ideal grace and beauty without losing likeness or character. He had a plausible brush, yet his art was not akin to the emasculated style of thirty years later. In none of his subjects were elements of his style so marked as in Lady Charlotte. In her was graciousness allied with high-bred dignity;and this was the most marked characteristic of his manner”. SIZE: 50-1/4″ x 40″. PROVENANCE: Newhouse Galleries, New York (photographed on page #354, May 1954 Antiques Magazine and page #6, January 1957 Antiques Magazine); a prominent New Jersey home.

SIR HENRY RAEBURN R.A. (British, 1756-1823) PORTRAIT OF “MAJOR ROBERT MCGREGOR”. Oil on canvas three quarter portrait of a military officer dressed in red waist coat with black lapels, white shirt and pants.

Housed in a large gilt molded wood antique frame. Two Newhouse Gallery labels affixed to cardboard back with title, artist, etc. Appears to be unsigned. Paper on the reverse states “Major Robert McGregor in the Honorable East India Co. service was Secretary and Persian Interpreter in the field, fell at the Battle of Deli, 11 September, 1803. In uniform, holding his sword and hat in his hand. The owner of this picture was a descendant of the person represents, and the picture has never been out of the family. Raeburn received 200 pounds for painting it, and was a friend who used to visit the family at Portobello, where McGregor lived. The picture came from Norman McGregor, who until recently was living at Taunton. Probably the portrait was not known to Sir Walter Armstrong when he made his book on Raeburn as it has never been out of the possession of the family”. NOTE: Listed and illustrated in James Grieg’s Book on Raeburn confirming this painting to be by Sir Henry Raeburn. Our research indicates that a painting of this name was sold at Christies, London in 1907. Raeburn is most known for his portraits and the most recognized for “The Skating Minister”.
