Large Georgian portrait of ‘Richard Hill Rocke’ 1804
A superb Georgian portrait of Richard Hill Rocke (1757-1823) in original gilt frame, signed and dated 1804.
Painted to a fine standard and in excellent original and untouched condition, including its ornate gilded frame. The painting has good provenance and was bought privately from an Essex country house and as far as we are aware has never before been offered to the market. It has the original label on the reverse with date, along with another from when it was cleaned in the late 19th century by Wilkinson & son of Sheffield.
Richard Hill Rocke was a Royal Navy officer and appears on various English archival websites. Displays incredibly well.
Frame 100cm H x 90cm W x 11cm D
