Robert Osbaldeston, (d.1715)
A full-length portrait facing slightly left, seated at a table in a blue silk robe, lined with orange silk, and wearing a brown full-bottomed wig. He wears buckled shoes. To his right, his arm rests on a table covered with velvet, and on which an inkwell and papers are placed. He holds a quill pen in his right hand. Robert Osbaldeston was a very wealthy man, who was a generous benefactor to Greenwich Hospital, granting extensive lands and bequeathing it â”œÃ²â”œâ•‘20,000, and the dues paid by ships passing his lighthouses. To denote this, an impression of the Hospital and the river with shipping can be seen through a window to the right of the sitter. This painting is a copy of an original also painted by Charles D' Agar, which was owned by Admiral Lord Matthew Aylmer, the Governor of Greenwich Hospital. It was a posthumous replica commissioned by the Governors of the Hospital in 1717.
