Francis Hayman R.A. (attributed) (British, 1708-1776) “A Lawyer”, circa 1765, oil painting on plank, no visible signature, framed under glass. Old gallery label verso from “W. Russell Button, Inc.” of Chicago states this comes from the collection of Sir Hughes Stanton, R.A. Additionally a letter dated 1950 accompanies this painting and repeats that this came from Hughes Stanton. Measures 12in x 10in framed and 7in x 5.75in image only. Condition: Painting has overall light craquelure typical of the age, the cover glass is quite dirty on the inside and this will brighten up considerably when the glass is cleaned. I’ll leave the decision to break the seal on the back up to the new owner.
