A fellow student of Millais, Rosetti and Holman Hunt, Frederick Pickersgill’s technique and great attention to detail was heavily influenced by the Pre-Raphaelites. He found great success as a painter of finely executed historical and literary subjects, and exhibited 50 paintings at the Royal Academy between 1839 and 1875.

This is a very large fine 19th century oil on canvas depicting the royal court of King Charles II in the gardens of an English stately home in Kent by the distinguished Royal Academy painter James Digman Wingfield (1800-1872). ‘Summer Hill, time of Charles II (They went every day to court, or the court came to them)’ is signed by the artist and dated 1855, in which year it was exhibited at the Royal Academy in London.

Summer Hill House is a Grade I listed Jacobean mansion near Tonbridge in the English county of Kent. Following the restoration of the English monarchy in 1660, King Charles II gave Summer Hill to Viscountess Muskerry, a lady of extravagant tastes who subsequently – and notoriously – played host to the King and his entire court.

The house and its history of royal debauchery is mentioned numerous times in Count de Grammont’s scandalous ‘Memoirs of the English Court’ and was immortalised in a poem of 1833 entitled ‘The Country Seat’ which names four of the King’s most famous mistresses; Nell Gwynne, Moll Davis, Frances Stewart, and the Countess of Castlemaine…

“Oh, Summer Hill if thou wert mine,
I’d order in a pipe of wine,
And ask a dozen friends to dine!
Once tenants of this fair domain,
Soft Stewart, haughtiest Castlemaine,
Pert Nelly Gwynne, gay Molly Davis,
And many another Rara Avis.
E’en now, midst yonder leafy glade,
Methinks I see thy Royal shade,
In amplitude of wig arrayed.”

This is a large fine early 19th century Georgian oil on canvas depicting a young woman at the piano with a copy of the British national anthem ‘God Save the King’ on her lap. The young woman is ‘Emma Gisborne Clementi’ the wife of the famous Italian composer Muzio Clementi.

After moving to London, he created his own publishing firm and also began manufacturing fine pianos. One of Clementi’s most famous works is his Symphony No. 3 in G major in which he used the theme of God Save the King. Eleven years later he married a third and final wife, the much younger Emma Gisborne who was 23 his junior.
