Nogari's portraits for Consul Smith

These two paintings form part of a series of six, identically sized portraits, executed by the Venetian artist Giuseppe Nogari. The paintings were commissioned by Joseph Smith, British Consul in Venice, before being acquired by George III in 1762. The selection of artists (which includes Veronese, Bassano, Cignani and Van Dyck) reflects the works in Smith’s own collection rather than simply the relative renown of the sitters.
