AFTER JEAN-MARC NATTIER (1685-1766)
PUTTI WITH A FLORAL GARLAND
oil on canvas
76 cm by 63 cm; 30 in by 25 in

Provenance
The Earls of Barrymore

The present work is a copy of two putti on the right hand side of Nattier's "Portrait of a Lady presumed to be Louise Diane d'Orleans".

According to a label on the reverse of the frame, it is that the present work came from the collection of Richard, the 7th Lord Barrymore (1769-1793). Known as Hellgate, or The Rake of Rakes, he was a famous sportsman, riding his own racehorses with great success, boxing, fencing, and appearing in first-class cricket twice for Brighton. In 1791 he became an MP for Heytesbury, possibly to escape arrest for debt. Having been commissioned into the Royal Berkshire Militia in 1789 he was later killed by an accidental discharge of his musket while escorting French prisoners of war to Dover. While it was believed that he died deeply indebted, after probate he was found to be solvent.

London, Old Watercolour Society, 1850, no. 377

George Cattermole was born at Dickleburgh, in Norfolk. When he was fourteen he began working as an architectural and topographical designer for the antiquary John Britton. He became an associate of the Royal Watercolour Society in 1822 and a full member in 1833. In 1850 he abandoned the society, dedicating his attention to painting in oil. At the Paris Exhibition of 1855 George Cattermole was honoured with one of the five first-class gold medals awarded to British painters. He also received professional artistic honours in Amsterdam and in Belgium. Among his leading works are The Murder of the Bishop of Liege, The Armourer (relating the Story of the Sword) and The Assassination of the Regent Murray by Hamilton of Bothwellhaugh. He was strongly influenced by the writing of Walter Scott whose work he also illustrated. The present work is a major exhibition piece from his final years as a watercolour painter.
