A superb, large scale, English country house, portrait of a gentleman, Mr F Binney Esq.
The artist has captured the sitter in a beautiful relaxed pose and I particularly like his use of a deep, rich brown, colour palette with a striking splash of red in the tie.
Painted by John Gray, signed and dated 1901.
The label verso reads ‘ John Gray, Winford House, Maiden Newton, Dorset. A portrait of F Binney Esq’
John Gray was active 1885-1922. His portraits include those of Sir John Heathcote Amory and Alexandra Georgina Seymour ( Lady Amory) both of which are in the National Trust Collections and are housed at Knightshayes Court in Devon ( the former home of the Heathcote Amory family)
In excellent condition and in its original gilt frame.
