Isaac Henrique Sequeira

Ca. 1775. Oil on canvas.
Not on display

Sequeira (1738-1816) was a celebrated doctor who numbered Gainsborough among his patients. Born into a Jewish family in Lisbon, he moved to Bordeaux, studied in Leyden and eventually settled in London where he practised his profession. Gainsborough follows Van Dyck’s interest in capturing the character of the sitter and conveys Sequeira’s refined character. He presents him in a dignified pose with a thoughtful, melancholy attitude.
