Four miniature portraits by Arthur Devis of his family.

1) Elizabeth Faulkner, his wife; 2) Anthony Devis Senior, father of Arthur Devis; 3) Anthony Devis Junior, half brother of Arthur Devis; 4) John Devis, half brother of Arthur Devis. They are all in their original frames and have early, identifying inscriptions on the backs. All seem to date from 1742.

Provenance

Family of Martin Tupper, collateral descendants of Devis, but separated by 1895 when a list of his portraits was made.
