Pair of Regency Giltwood Wall Sconces, ca 1820

Circle of Richard Westall RA (1765-1836) Oil on Canvas of a Surprising Discovery

From the Circle of Richard Westell (1765-1836), an oil on canvas depicting a group of cave explorers holding a burning torch and clearly making a surprising discovery.

It’s a nicely painted early oil which tells a story. The painting came from the estate of the late Sir George Solti (1912-1997) whose main residence had been in London.

Sir George Solti, original name Gyorgy Stern Solti, was born in Budapest. He was a Hungarian-born British conductor who became conductor of the Chicago Symphony orchestra in 1969.

This painting became available after the recent death of his wife Lady Valerie Solti.
