Early 18th Century Queen Anne period oil on canvas portrait of Charles Moore (b 24th Oct 1699 - d 1738), age 6-7, son of the Right Reverend the Lord Bishop of Norwich, circa 1706-7, by Johann Kerseboom (birth date unknown-died 1708). 


Portrait painter, Johann Kerseboom, initially worked in Germany before coming to England in the 1680s with his uncle, portraitist Frederick Kerseboom. He set up a practice in London as a painter of portraits, where he met with greater success than his elder relative. A number of his portraits were engraved in mezzotint by engravers of the time, including the rare example by Peter Coombes, c1707 which accompanies this painting. Copies of this mezzotint are held in The National Portrait Gallery, The V&A and the Royal Collection. 

The mezzotint is framed in a 19th Century Dutch ripple frame in the 17th Century Flemish manner and is accompanied by a certificate from Grosvenor Prints, London. 


The portrait itself is in very good order having been professionally cleaned and restored. The painting has been relined in the 19th Century. The period giltwood frame is also in fine original condition. 


Little is known of Charles Moore, he was born 24th Oct 1699 and died 1738, son of the Right Reverend John Moore the Lord Bishop of Norwich and Dorothy Moore (Barnes). Bishop John Moore was descended from the ancient family of De La Moor (later Moore). Moore was appointed Bishop of Norwich in 1691 and was translated to the See of Ely in 1707. He died in Ely on 31 July 1714 and was buried in Ely Cathedral.[ At the time of his death in 1714, Moore's collection of books and papers contained over 30,000 items, and may have been the largest in England. To celebrate his coronation, King George I caused it to be purchased intact, at a cost of 6,000 guineas, and donated it to Cambridge University Library. Moore's library alone contained nearly double the previous material in that library. While some material has been removed over the years, the gift is still largely intact and is called "The Royal Library" in honour of its patron. Notable books in his library include the Book of Deer and the Treatise of Love Additional provenance from repository labels referencing Lady Campbell a Somerset private collection, formerly the property of Sir Harold and Lady Campbell. Captain Sir Harold George Campbell GCVO DSO (6th April 1888 – 9th June 1969) was a British Royal Navy sailor, civil servant and courtier who served as Equerry to King George VI and Queen Elizabeth II. Campbell served as Private Secretary to then Duke of York from 1933-1936 and Deputy Comptroller in 1936. Upon the Duke of York becoming King, Campbell was appointed to the Royal Household as an equerry and Groom of the Robes to HM Queen Elizabeth. He was made a CVO (Commander of the Royal Victorian Order) in 1935, promoted to KCVO (Knight Commander) on the 2nd of June 1943 and later GCVO (Knight/ Grand Cross) on the 16th of November 1953.
