Three Young Children with Puppy Oil Portrait by James Ramsay Dated 1806
Oil on canvas portrait of three young children holding a puppy. The large painting shows three beautiful young children (apparently siblings) in white dresses holding a brown and white puppy. The painting is signed by English portrait painter James Ramsay (1789-1854) on the reverse canvas and dated 1806. Unfortunately, the identity of the children is unknown.
Ramsay first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1803 with a self-portrait. He continued to exhibit mainly portraits at the Royal Academy over the years, the last around 1849. Ramsay's works are represented in many museums and galleries around Britain, with at least 25 portraits in public collections.
Painting measures 34" wide by 27" high. The frame, which I believe is the original, measures 44" by 33" and is a little shabby, but works with the painting and I personally would not change it. The painting has three patches on the reverse where there has been repair. The first is on the left hand cheek of the middle child. The second is under the arm of the child to the right looking at the painting. It is directly below the end of the sleeve on her white dress. The third is on the child on the left where her left arm meets the sleeve of the dress. The most prominent repair is on the child's cheek and the other two are very minor. You may enlarge the images to view. The repairs are not distracting and the painting displays beautifully.
A very charming and special piece by a highly listed and prominent artist.
