By Family Legend, Nelly Gwyn, Mistress of Charles II
Circa 1680
Oil on Canvas



An attractive work depicting an elegant lady wearing competently rendered fine and expensive silk, velvet and lace.

The canvas was mounted on a second canvas and stretcher during the late eighteenth or early nineteenth century; the most minor in-painting to a few scattered abrasions.

An agreeable bust length portrait of a woman depicted with sloping shoulders wearing a lace collar and bonnet topped with a blue bow, tied with a blue ribbon.

Queen Kamamalu of Hawaii (1802-1824)
Wife of King Kamehameha II
Oil On Canvas
Anonymous



This outstanding and rare image of the beloved Queen is after John Hayter's famous 1824 lithograph, and is nearly identical in detail. The portrait was painted circa 1824-1830. A very similar example can be found in the collection of Iolani Palace, Oahu Hawaii. The portrait remains in excellent condition with only typical aging; very scattered and minor surface abrasions. When purchased, it was mounted on Masonite which, has been professionally removed. The picture measures 12 by 9-inches. At the time of purchase the painting was mounted on Masonite, but has since been professionally removed with no damage or alteration to the painting. In addition, there was note affixed to the verso which reading "purchased from JPT Armstrong (President of Belding Corticelli Co), New London, CT 1942". The portrait, measuring 9 by 12-inch site size displays exceptional as is (without frame), or is ready to be border lined, stretched and installed within a period frame.

Queen Consort Victoria Kamamalu was born in 1802. She was the wife of Liholiho, who ruled Hawaii as King Kamehameha II after his father, King Kamehamehathe Great died.

In 1823, five years after taking his throne, Kamehameha II (Liholio) and Queen Kamamalu set sail for London, England aboard the English whale ship L'Aigle on November 27. Everyone in his party came down with measles, for which the Hawaiians had no immunity. Liholio's favorite wife, Queen Kamamalu, died in London on July 8, 1824. Heartbroken, Liholio also died on July 14. Their bodies were returned to Hawaii for burial, and Liholio's ten-year old brother Kauikeaouli became Kamehameha III

In 1824, John Hayter, noted British Painter, painted portraits of Hawaii's King Kamehameha II and Queen Kamamalu in London shortly before they died there of measles.
