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.
