Seller: academyfinepaintings (524) 100%, Location: Gerrards Cross, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 233299633503 This is a very large fine 19th century oil on canvas depicting the royal court of King Charles II in the gardens of an English stately home in Kent by the distinguished Royal Academy painter James Digman Wingfield (1800-1872). ‘Summer Hill, time of Charles II (They went every day to court, or the court came to them)’ is signed by the artist and dated 1855, in which year it was exhibited at the Royal Academy in London. It hangs in a superb newly commissioned handmade gold metal leaf frame. As with all of the original antique oil paintings we sell it is offered in excellent condition, having just been professionally cleaned and re-varnished. Summer Hill House is a Grade I listed Jacobean mansion near Tonbridge in the English county of Kent. Following the restoration of the English monarchy in 1660, King Charles II gave Summer Hill to Viscountess Muskerry, a lady of extravagant tastes who subsequently – and notoriously – played host to the King and his entire court. The house and its history of royal debauchery is mentioned numerous times in Count de Grammont’s scandalous ‘Memoirs of the English Court’ and was immortalised in a poem of 1833 entitled ‘The Country Seat’ which names four of the King’s most famous mistresses; Nell Gwynne, Moll Davis, Frances Stewart, and the Countess of Castlemaine… “Oh, Summer Hill if thou wert mine, I’d order in a pipe of wine, And ask a dozen friends to dine! Once tenants of this fair domain, Soft Stewart, haughtiest Castlemaine, Pert Nelly Gwynne, gay Molly Davis, And many another Rara Avis. E’en now, midst yonder leafy glade, Methinks I see thy Royal shade, In amplitude of wig arrayed.” Dimensions: (framed) 131cm x 106cm (51½” x 41½”) Dimensions: (canvas only) 114cm x 89cm (45” x 35”) Medium: Oil on canvas.

About AFP Academy Fine Paintings is an international fine art dealership based in Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire, England. We specialise in 19th century British and European oil paintings by some of the most important artists of the period, from Victorian landscapes and subject pictures to Belle Epoque portraits and Orientalist scenes. Packaging Great care and much time is taken over the safe transportation of the paintings we sell. Safe shipping is predominantly about correct packaging; we only use the highest quality fine art packaging materials. No second-hand bubble-wrap and reused cardboards boxes here! Before leaving us, each painting takes us approximately 2 to 3 hours to properly (i.e. safely and securely) package for transport; whether for a journey or 30 miles or 3000. Every painting is first wrapped in acid free paper and then the entire frame is enveloped in deep, dense foam U cushioning. This is then covered in numerous layers of AirCap bubble wrap, which is the best and safest product of its type on the market. Sheets of high density fine art packaging card are then secured to the front and rear of the painting with waterproof cloth tape before the painting is then fitted in place inside a bespoke fine art shipping box. The entire package is then bound in black shrink wrap (as used by airline companies) and a final later of waterproof cloth tape is applied to all corners, ends and edges. Shipping We ship domestically and internationally with UPS and FedEx. We will ship to most locations worldwide; please send us an email for a quote. All buyers will need to supply a complete address and telephone contact number for shipping forms. UK clients are also most welcome to collect from us in South Buckinghamshire.

All of the paintings offered as ebay ‘Buy It Now’ listings are available to buy across three monthly instalments. Any client wishing to utilise this payment method should drop me an email and once the total sale price and payment timetable has been agreed the painting will be removed from sale and reserved for the client.
