Lot Essay

The collection at Farnley Hall, Yorkshire, was largely formed by Walter Fawkes, best know for his patronage of Joseph Mallord William Turner, who was a regular visitor to the house. Fawkes' outstanding acquisition, Turner's celebrated Dort is now in the Mellon Centre for British Art, New Haven. The present picture was long believed and published as by Frans Snyders, until in 1994 the prime version appeared at auction (Christie's, London, 18 May 1994, lot 27.).
