Footnotes

  • The original portrait by Francis Cotes was sold by Christies London as lot 21, 15th November, 1996 for a price of £716,500.00 including premium and it is now housed in the museum at Lords. The dimensions are almost identical.

    This is the footnote that Christies published at the sale of this Katherine Lloyd painting:

    Francis Cotes's original picture, executed in 1768, remained with the sitter's descendants until bought by Sir Paul Getty at Christie's sale, 15 November 1996, lot 21. The present copy by Katharine Lloyd was commissioned to celebrate the opening of the museum at Lord's in 1953. It hung in the Pavilion for the greater part of the ensuing years until MCC purchased the original painting in 2008. Lewis Cage, whose family seat was Milgate Park in West Kent, is depicted slightly flushed after the rigours of the game with his shirt untucked and left stocking falling down. The young sitter's pose -- derived from Van Dyck -- is nevertheless imbued with a noble presence, the bat of adult size and long row of brass buttons on his waistcoat give him a swaggering air, making him appear exceptionally tall and masterly for a boy of five.
