More apologies (and another plug)

...more woeful service at the moment I'm afraid. Blame the 12 hour days on the stand at Masterpiece and preparing for Master Paintings Week. So I may be quiet for a few days - sorry. In the meantime, here's an interesting, recently discovered self-portrait we're showing at Masterpiece. It's by Henry Wyatt, was painted in London in 1826, and was spotted by Philip Mould in a sale in the US, where it was called an unknown gent. A nice repatriation I think. More details here.
Update - more plugging! Here's a photo of our new selling exhibition, 'Sir Peter Lely and his Circle', at Philip Mould & Company, which I've just finished hanging. If you'd like to come, it's open every day till next Friday, as part of Master Paintings Week. We have eight Lelys below, of which four are previously unknown.
