Benjamin West PRA

One of the benefits of writing my blog is that I learn something every day, including today, that I have muddled the authorship of the paintings in the Burlington House front entrance hall.   The ones in the middle are not by Angelica Kaufman, but were commissioned from Benjamin West, but are now thought to be by Gilbert Stuart who was working in West’s studio from 1777 to 1782.   The paintings only came to Burlington House when the Front Entrance Hall was reconfigured by T.G. (Anglo) Jackson in 1899.   My apologies for the mistake:-
