  • PROVENANCE:
    By descent in the family of the sitter to Roger Coke, London
    Sale, Christie's, London, 22 November 2006, lot 25

    The sitter is likely to be Richard Coke, a younger son of the family which owned Brookhill Hall in Derbyshire for generations. His father, D'Ewes Coke (died 1771), was succeeded by Richard's nephew, the Rev. D'Ewes Coke. The latter continued the family tradition of artistic patronage, commissioning Joseph Wright of Derby in 1792 to paint his portrait (along with his wife, Hannah and relative, Daniel Parker Coke) which is now in Derby Museum and Art Gallery.
