gallery visit Gawthorpe Hall Burnley portraiture by William Dobson

A few months ago I watched a BBC documentary by Waldemar Januszczak on William Dobson-one of the first of the British portrait artists, working at the time of Charles the first following in the footsteps of  Van Dyck (who was Flemish) and Holbein (who was German).

Gawthorpe Hall had a Dobson portrait of a Sir Thomas Aylesbury.
