A oil on canvas portrait by the circle of Godfrey Kneller (1646-1723) has an estimate of £4,000-£6,000 at Olympia Auctions’ sale on April 28.
Entitled Portrait of a Boy and Whippet, it may be from the studio of Kneller who was the leading portrait painter in England during the late 17th and early 18th centuries, and was court painter to English and British monarchs from Charles II to George I.

commission from 15 per cent to 10 per cent of which half will go to the Wallace Collection, Westminster Abbey or the Grange Festival
