Studio/Circle of SIR PETER LELY
“Portrait of a Cleric feigned oval”
Oil on canvas, 76.5 x 63 cm.
£ 5,000-7,000

Catalogue note:
The work can be compared closely on stylistic and compositional grounds to treatments of the subject
by Dutch schools and notably the circle of Sir Peter Lely (1618–1680). Comparison between the present
work reveals a comparable treatment of light and a similar characterisation of the figure, notably in the
definition of the face. Lely’s later period c.1660/70s from the images supplied a plausible attribution is
the Studio/Circle of Sir Peter Lely (1618-1680) is plausible.
