Portrait of a Young Gentleman Out Shooting by George Stubbs

Portrait of a Young Gentleman Out Shooting by George Stubbs, 1781

Original Size: 24 x 18"

In the late 1760s Stubbs began a series of unusual experiments with use of enamel pigments, first on copper and later on ceramics. The process was technically difficult and not a commercial success. Nevertheless the venture resulted in a series of remarkable works of crisp, unfading brilliance, among which this is one of the most attractive to survive. The subject here is traditionally identified as William Huth Esq, son of a gentleman farmer, but nothing further is known about him.
