Mid-Georgian Portraits Catalogue
Eva Maria Garrick (née Veigel) (1724-1822), Dancer; wife of David Garrick
Pastel attributed to William Hoare, of which there are two versions: Sotheby's, 14 July 1994, lot 75, descended from Garrick’s niece, Arabella Garrick (Mrs Schaw); Chatsworth (where attributed to George Knapton), presumably descended from the Earl and Countess of Burlington.
Anon. engraving, half length as Mademoiselle Violetti (London Mag., a pendant to an engraving of the Pond portrait of her husband).
Pastel by J-E. Liotard, drawn in Paris, with pendant of her husband. Chatsworth (illus. Treasures of Chatsworth, 1991, p 127).
Pastel by Katherine Read, half length. Victoria and Albert Museum (P.10.1963; illus. M. Archer, India and British Portraiture 1770-1825, 1979, p 119), by descent from Arabella Garrick. Engraved W. Sherlock 1802; a drawing in the Garrick Club (G. Ashton, Pictures in the Garrick Club, ed. K. A. Burnim & A. Wilton, 1997, no.254) is closer to the engraving than the pastel (illus. P. H. Highfill, K. A. Burnim & E. A. Langhans, A Biographical Dictionary of Stage Personnel in London, 1660-1800, VI, p 110). A half-length painting derived from the Read pattern was listed at Tockenham Manor as a pendant to Gainsborough’s 1770 portrait of David Garrick (Prince Duleep Singh, Portraits in Norfolk Houses, 1928, II, p 420, no.47).
Painting by William Hogarth, with her husband, see David Garrick.
Painting unconvincingly attributed to Johann Zoffany, half-length. Robinson & Fisher, 7 May 1914, lot 110, descended from Arabella Garrick (illus. D. M. Little & G. M. Kahrl, The Letters of David Garrick, 1963, I, f.p.117), probably correctly identified.
Pastel by F-X. Vispré. Bromley-Davenport sale, Sotheby's, 11 June 1947, lot 3 with a pendant of David Garrick.
Paintings by Johann Zoffany, with her husband, see David Garrick.
Drawing by Nathaniel Dance, see NPG 3640.
Painting by Joshua Reynolds, with her husband, see David Garrick NPG 5375.
Wax medallion by Lewis Pingo, exhibited Free Society of Artists, London, 1772 (153), see Wal. Soc., XXVII, 1939, p 75.
Miniature by George Engleheart, sold Sotheby's, 28 April 1988, lot 48 (G. C. Williamson & H. L. D. Engleheart, George Engleheart, 1902, pp 30, 98).
Drawing by I. R. Cruikshank, small whole length, dated September 1820; etched by him on her death in October 1822.
While apparently sharing the early provenance of Gainsborough's portrait of David Garrick NPG 5054, a portrait called Mrs Garrick by Gainsborough in the Grand Rapids Art Museum, Michigan (exhibited Art Treasures, Manchester, 1857, BPG 285; sale Christie's 16 June 1900, lot 106), appears to be by Nathaniel Hone and not to show Mrs Garrick; a miniature copy by Horace Hone dated 1771 sold Christie's, 28 October 1980, lot 86.
Attributed to Gainsborough (private collection; E. K. Waterhouse, Gainsborough, 1958, no.308). Miniature by Luke Sullivan 1761, sold Bonham's, 20 November 1997, lot 63; unattributed portraits in the Garrick Club (G. Ashton, Portraits in the Garrick Club, ed. K. A. Burnim & A. Wilton, 1997, nos.255-56) with two unattributed wax busts (Garrick Club; G. Ashton, Portraits in the Garrick Club, ed. K. A. Burnim & A. Wilton, 1997, S14, S17).
