Portrait of the goldsmith John Bridge; formal portrait of a middle-aged man, well-dressed but not particularly stylishly: white cravat and heavy, lustrous buttoned coat and trousers buttoned at the knees. He sits on an upholstered couch with an additional cushion, and rests his right hand on a cloth-covered table, his index finger pointing to a piece of paper. Two books lean against a larger book on the table.Behind him is the obligatory curtain as well as a painting of a church with tombstones in the foreground. (Virginia K. Anderson 02/13/95)
Private plate - proof before title.
