The Young Victorian Sketch by John Hayter 1800-1891

This beautiful Chalk with wash sketch by a famous artist is from the collection of Lord Luke. John Hayter brother George Hayter was commissioned to paint numerous portraits of Queen Victoria so John Hayter may have had access to her personally in this way or may have drawn inspiration from his brotherís sketches. However, due to the sensitivity of her majesty I feel that this must have been drawn from life. Surly this is an image that drew the young Prince Albert so close to her. John Hayter became best known as a portrait painter. He was the son of miniaturist London born Charles Hayter and the brother of George Hayter, also a portraitist. He entered the Royal Academy schools in 1815 and began to exhibit at the Royal Academy in the same year. He also exhibited work at the British Institution and the Royal Society of British Artists. Hayter established himself during the 1820ís with portraits of notable figures such as the Duke of Wellington and the opera singer Gidetta Pasta. His portrait drawings, in chalks or crayons became particularly popular, a number of them being engraved for the court album. There is a repaired tear to the upper left which would be obscured by a mount, some age related wear. A truly fine sketch, worthy of the Finest Royal collection. Unframed, signed lower right. Size: 45cm by 30cm
