Samuel Harry Hancock artist

Today, we visit with an artist best known for his images of Victorian London as well as his portraits. #SamuelHarryHancock (1871-1932) worked mostly in oils and his portraitures come from earlier in his career.

I picked up a portrait of a young lady by Hancock this past week. Shown side on in a light blue gown with tousled brown hair and unadorned with any jewelry, she gazes past the viewer. We do not know the identity of the sitter of this portrait. Does it matter? Hancock’s talent can be seen. Colours finely blended to enhance light and shadow.

A beautiful lady to hang on the wall.
