    comply with current regulations.

    Bidding

    At the Sale

    To bid at the sale all potential

    buyers must be registered with us

    on or before the day of sale. We

    will need proof of identification

    and residence, and may require a

    bank reference. Potential buyers

    must collect a bidding number

    before the sale begins, and show

    that number if successful in

    purchasing a lot. Please ensure

    that the auctioneer repeats the

    number correctly when

    confirming the sale. If there is any

    doubt at this stage as to the

    hammer price or buyer it must be

    brought to the auctioneers

    attention immediately. All lots

    will be invoiced to the name and

    address given on your registration

    form, which is non-transferable. If

    you have purchased a lot you

    first one received will take

    precedence. They must be

    bids but we offer this service

    entirely at the bidders risk.

    Note:This depiction of Jesus in profile isderived from an image engraved on theEmerald Vernicle in the collection of theVatican. Like St.Veronicas Veil and theMandylion Edessa, the Emerald Vernicle,though not claimed as miraculous, wasaccepted as a portrait of Christ.Around 1429, Sultan Bajazet 11 ofConstantinople, The Great Turk, gave theemerald, carved with the profile of Jesus,to Pope Innocent VIII. Bajazet profferedthe emerald to ensure that his brotherwould remain in Papal custody, thussecuring his own unhindered accessionto the throne. The inscription below theportrait relates to this story, although thepainter has changed the intention behindthe gift.

    218.5cm x 142cm (86in x 56in)

    Note:A German-born pupil of Bol andRembrandt, Godfrey Kneller became theleading portrait painter in the court ofEngland in the late 17th and early 18thcenturies.The present work is related to severalother examples of Knellers portrait ofWilliam III (or King Billy as he wascolloquially known amongst his Scotsand Irish subjects), including that held inthe Royal Collection. The work differsfrom the Royal Collection version inWilliams choice of footwear, depictinghim in red-heeled shoes. A traditionalsymbol of status which survives in theLouboutins of today, this sartorial choiceechoes the Parisian fashions of hiselegant foe, Louis XIV, whom Kneller alsopainted. For many years it has hung in anhistoric Irish household, where itselaborate crown-topped frame wouldhave attested to the households loyaltyto the throne.
