Mid-Georgian Portraits Catalogue
Benjamin Stillingfleet (1702-1771), Naturalist and writer
A whole length at Felbrigg, previously described as Stillingfleet and attributed to Frans van der Mijn, is now believed to show James Dagnia (c.1709-55) by John Shackleton (I am most grateful to Alastair Laing for this information).
