Oil on Canvas Portrait of Peregrine Bertie by Francis Hayman

Painted in 1739, this portrait of Peregrine Bertie, 13th Lord Willoughby de Eresby, after the picture in the Ancaster Collection, Grimsthorpe Castle, is one of only two known copies made by Francis Hayman.

The sitter was the son of Richard Bertie (1517-1582) and his wife, Katherine, Duchess of Suffolk, daughter of William Willoughby, 11th Baron Willoughby de Eresby, whom she succeeded as 12th Baron in her own right. He was born in Wesel, Cleves, while his parents were in exile during the reign of Mary I, returning to England on Elizabeth I’s accession. He married Mary, daughter of John de Vere, 16th Earl of Oxford.

Willoughby’s illustrious military career and exceptional powers of leadership on the battlefield were celebrated in contemporary verse, including the ballad of ‘Brave Lord Willoughby’.

Provenance:
Probably commissioned by Peregrine Bertie (1709-1777), son of Charles Bertie (d. 1730), of Uffington House, Lincolnshire, and by descent through his son, Albemarle, 9th Earl of Lindsey (1744-1818), to his grandson, Montague Peregrine Albemarle, 12th Earl of Lindsey (1861-1938), and by descent to his daughter, the late Lady Muriel Barclay-Harvey (1893-1980).



FRANCIS HAYMAN (c 1708-1776):
Portrait of Peregrine Bertie, 13th Lord Willoughby de Eresby (1555-1601), full-length, in a black doublet and pantaloons, wearing damascened armour, in a wooded river landscape by a waterfall, with a bridge and a castle beyond.
