William Dobson was Britain’s finest Baroque portraitist.

He was an unusually talented native artist whose work is bound up inextricably with one of the most dramatic events in history:
The English Civil War.

He was there. He saw it. He painted it. And he should not be forgotten.

A fantastic self portrait of Dobson is up for auction in July this year, here is a short film we made with Bonhams.
