Portrait of a Woman attrib. to  Luke Sullivan, c. 1770

Luke Sullivan, c. 1770. Watercolour portrait miniature of a woman with dark hair wearing a blue gown with matching hair ribbons, a five strand pearl choker and pearl earrings, and pink posey to decollate. Oval, 3.7 cms. X 3 cms. (i 1/2 inches X 1 1/4 inches). Gold frame with brooch mount. Lovely and unusual glazed needlework of a tree to reverse. Luke Sullivan was born in County Louth, Ireland, in 1705, and was brought to England at a young age when his father became groom to the Duke of Beaufort. It is the Duke of Beaufort who assisted Sullivan in obtaining instruction in engraving. Sullivan exhibited at the Society of Artists, of which he was a member, from 1764-170, from different London addresses. Examples of his work can be found at the V & A Museum, the British Museum, and major collections world-wide.
