Early 19th Century Oil Painting of a Child with a Dog

  • H: 163 cm (64 3/16")
  • W: 137 cm (53 15/16")
  • D: 12 cm (4 3/4")

Large 19th Century oil painting depicting a child holding a dog.

The child is depicted to be standing on an adjacent pedestal in front of a classical urn with a field beyond, sloping down to a wooded vale, attributed to Margaret Carpenter 1793-1872, in an excellent period frame.

Margaret Sarah Carpenter (nee Geddes; 1793 - 13 November 1873) was born in Salisbury, the daughter of Captain Alexander Geddes, from Edinburgh, and Harriet Easton. Noted in her lifetime, she mainly painted portraits in the manner of Sir Thomas Lawrence and later became a close friend of Richard Parkes Bonington, the highly acclaimed English landscape painter who had moved to France at the age of 14.

Three of her pictures are in the collection of the National Gallery in London, including paintings of her husband, Richard Parkes Bonington and the sculptor John Gibson.

This would have been an expensive commission for someone of great importance, or at least great wealth, at the time. All in all a charming piece of social history in a very good frame.
