Samuel Butler, by Pieter Borsseler (floruit 1665-1684). See source website for additional information. This set of images was gathered by User:Dcoetzee from the National Portrait Gallery, London website using a special tool. All images in this batch have a known author with unknown death date, but according to the NPG’s website the author was floruit (known to be active) prior to 1859, and so is reasonably presumed dead by 1939.

(You definitely could not go for too much realism back in those days.  They had to be more attractive than they actually were, and with paintings that had more than one person they very often all had to look pretty much alike.  You had to play up to the guy who was paying for the painting, or else you just might not work again.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
