Pendant portraits at Valence House Museum
Acquired by Valence House Museum in 1972, very little is known about these two portraits. The sitters are wearing mid-17th century clothing and the portraits seem to form a pair. The paintings have been removed from their stretchers and appear to have undergone conservation at some point, possibly following fire damage. Any suggestions as to who the sitters and artist may be would be gratefully received.
Thoughts as to artist attribution, or sitter identify, are very welcome. Please use the ‘add a comment’ facility below
