Antique 19thc Scottish Oil Painting Portrait Earl Of Breadalbane, John Campbell For Sale
19thc Rare Scottish Oil Painting Portrait Earl of Breadalbane, John Campbell
John Alexander Campbell 1824-1871
A fantastic original nineteenth century British School oil painting, depicting a portrait of John Alexander Campbell, Sixth Earl of Breadalbane. The Earl is finely dressed in a dark jacket and white cravat. The quality is excellent, the attention to the sitters face is striking and the piece would be worth further research. Unsigned. With a manuscript annotation to verso. Presented in a decent attractive gilt frame, which compliments the piece well.
This is a rare opportunity to acquire a truly fantastic oil painting portrait, associated with the Peerage of Scotland.
The condition is very good, there are a few scuffs and bumps to the panel, but this does not detract from the quality. The frame has a little loss to the edges, but is still attractive.
Earl of Breadalbane and Holland is a dormant title in the Peerage of Scotland. It was created in 1681 for Sir John Campbell, 5th Baronet, of Glenorchy, who had previously been deprived of the title Earl of Caithness. He, as a principal creditor, had "acquired" the estates of George Sinclair, 6th Earl of Caithness who had died heavily in debt and without issue in 1670. Campbell was consequently created Earl of Caithness in 1673, but after much litigation and even bloodshed, George Sinclair of Keiss (d. 1698), second son of George, 5th Earl of Caithness (d. 1643), recovered the estates, and successfully petitioned parliament regarding the earldom, which was removed from Campbell. Sinclair's title was finally restored to him in 1681. Deprived by parliament of the Caithness earldom, Sir John Campbell was created on Lord Glenorchy, Benederaloch, Ormelie and Weick, Viscount of Tay and Paintland, and Earl of Breadalbane and Holland on 13 August 1681, with the precedency of the former patent and with the power to nominate any of his sons by his first wife to succeeded him. The titles were created with remainder to the heirs male of the son chosen to succeeded him, failing which to the heirs male of his body, failing which to his own heirs male, failing which to his heirs whatsoever. The "of Holland" part of the title derived from the fact that Campbell was the husband of Lady Mary Rich, daughter of Henry Rich, 1st Earl of Holland (see Earl of Holland).
