Portrait of Mr. Storer

Ca. 1790. Oil on canvas. Not on display

The sitter, whose identity is not fully confirmed, is depicted in a fine interior, wearing an elegant frockcoat. He holds a print and a portfolio for prints. These objects, as well as the Greek amphora, indicate the sitter’s interest in the arts and archaeology. Archer Shee was an Irish painter and writer, who succeeded Sir Thomas Lawrence in 1830 as President of the Royal Academy in London.
