Fine Art/photo of painting from British Museum exhibit


how do I send a photo of the painting I am trying to identify?

This is a portrait of Mary Hamilton by Thomas Lawrence (1769 - 1830). It was drawn in 1789 using pencil & chalk on paper, it measures 45.8 x 31.2cm and was bought by the British Museum for 165,000 from Daniel Katz Ltd. It is a portrait of Mary Hamilton, the wife of Lawrence's artist friend and neighbour William Hamilton.  

I hope this helps you

I have studied many aspects of art history but my main focus has been on Italian Renaissance and Baroque periods. My strengths lie in the work of Caravaggio, Bernini, Raphael and Michealangelo.


I have spent years gathering and studying a large collection of books and documents relating to Italian art. I have also spent a large amount of time travelling to Florence, Rome and Venice to view specific paintings and sculptures.

I have no formal qualifications in art, It is quite simply a consuming passion and I consider myself to be extremely knowledgeable. I am educated to A level standard
