Anonymous sale ("The Property of a Gentleman"), London, Christie's, 28 June 1963, lot 61 (as Thomas Hudson).

Catalogue Note

The painting appears to be an early portrait by Allan Ramsay possibly done at the end of the 1730s. The sitter holds a music notation that reads 'Francesco Maria Vericini', an Italian composer who wrote operas in London at the time this painting was made. We are grateful to Dr. Brian Allen for endorsing the attribution to Allan Ramsay on the basis of photographs.
