'Portrait of a Man in Blue', or...
April 18 2012
Picture: PCF/Herbert Art Gallery & Museum
... a portrait of certain well known composer?
I'm continuing my roams around the new Public Catalogue Foundation website Your Paintings in preparation for my talk at the OPEN conference next week, looking for lost paintings. You should try it - it's great fun for us nerdy art history anoraks.
Here is the picture catalogued as 'Portrait of a Man in Blue (possibly the Reverend G Greenway)' at the Herbert Art Gallery in Coventry. Below is the original portrait, by Thomas Hudson, in the University Library of Hamburg. Click here to find out the sitter.
If you come across any other good examples, let me know.
