Attributed to W. Dyce Beaumont

Circa 1830-1840


A charming cut and painted silhouette with gilt highlights of three young children, all dressed in a rich claret colour, within a garden setting.

Attributed to Beaumont on stylistic grounds, most significantly the use of unusual colours for which Beaumont was renowned. Handsome flat profile maple frame with a gilt slip.

W. Dyce Beaumont worked during the 1830s and 1840s. Although sometimes dubbed ‘Beaumont of Cheltenham’, very little is actually known about him. His work though is critically acclaimed as ‘among the finest of the period’.
