Bartholomew Dandridge (1691-circa 1754)
Artist associated with 36 portraits
Bartholomew Dandridge studied at Sir Godfrey Kneller's academy of painting and later attended the St Martin's Lane Academy following its foundation in 1720 by John Vanderbank and Louis Cheron. For more than four decades he ran a successful and fashionable portrait practice in London; the highlight of his career was in 1732 when he was commissioned by Lord Barington to paint Frederick, Prince of Wales, on horseback. In 1731, Dandridge acquired the London studio and house of Sir Godfrey Kneller.
