Footnotes

  • Provenance
    Sotheby's, London, 1 December 1980, lot 64

    Given the approximate date of the present lot, the sitter is likely to be Charles Coote, 3rd Earl of Mountrath (c.1655–1709) but in the absence of any surviving portraits of the Earl, it has not been possible to verify this identification. His sons, Charles, Harry and Algernon (the 4th, 5th and 6th Earls of Mountrath) were not born until c.1680, 1684 and 1689 respectively, making them unlikely candidates.
