Unsigned artist in the Circle of John Vanderbank.
The sitter was the daughter of George Montagu, Earl of Halifax, and first wife of Francis, 7th Lord North and 3rd Lord Guilford, later 1st Earl of Guilford. Her son was Frederick Lord North, Prime Minister to King George III. Frederick asked George III on three occasions to be released from his duties as Prime Minister during the war of American Independence, the King refused him on each occasion. Following her death after giving birth to her second child in 1734, Francis North married secondly Elizabeth, Viscountess Lewisham (d. 1745), the widow of George Legge,Viscount Lewisham (1705-1732) and thirdly Katherine, Countess of Rockingham (d. 1766), widow of Lewis Watson, 2nd Earl of Rockingham (c. 1717-1745).
Another larger painting of her Lucy, Countess of Guilford was painted in three-quarter length by Sir Godfrey Kneller (sold Christie's London, 25 October 1968, lot 21) and also in full-length by Enoch Seeman (which is in another private collection).
Circle of John Vanderbank (9 September 1694 – 23 December 1739) was an English painter who enjoyed a high reputation during the last decade of King George 1’s reign and remained in high fashion in the first decade of King George II’s reign.] George Vertue’s opinion was that only intemperance and extravagance prevented Vanderbank from being the greatest portraitist of his generation, his lifestyle bringing him into repeated financial difficulties and leading to an early death at the age of only 45.
Vanderbank was born in London on 9 September 1694 into an artistic family, the eldest son of Sarah and John Vanderbank Snr, a naturalised Huguenot immigrant from Paris and, since 1679, well-to-do proprietor of the Soho Tapestry Manufactory and Yeoman Arras-maker to the Great Wardrobe, supplying the royal family with tapestries from his premises in Great Queen Street, Covent Garden. John Vanderbank senior was the leading tapestry weaver in England throughout his life and by the introduction of the lighter and less formal style, now referred to as chinoiserie, he exercised a powerful influence on the style of the Soho weavers.
John Vanderbank first studied composition and painting under his father and then the painter Jonathan Richardson, before becoming one of Sir Godfery Kneller’s earliest pupils in 1711 at his art academy in Great Queen Street, neighbouring his father's tapestry workshop. After Sir James Thornhill took over from Kneller in 1718, Vanderbank continued his studies there for two years before founding an academy of his own in 1720.
