George Beare (active 1738-1749)

Artist associated with 4 portraits
George Beare was a portrait painter who worked mainly in the West Country. Little is known of his training, but some fifty signed paintings, all dated between 1744 and 1749, suggest a knowledge of Mercier and particularly of Hogarth, with whom he has sometimes been confused.
