Does anyone know where the following art works might be? They are all of the Divett family as recorded in their wills. In particular I am seeking an image of John Divett and hs daughter Mary.
From George Ross Divett’s will of 1894 I know there were paintings/ busts of the Divett family by Stuart, Sir William Beechey, Sir George Hayter, Sir William Boscall, and George? Richmond as follows:-
Oil painting of Edward Divett his wife Ann nee Ross and child ( George Ross Divett) painted by Stuart
Oil painting by Sir William Beechey of Mrs Wentworth Buller
Two oil paintings of the Misses Divett as girls [ presumably Mary and Ann} George Ross Divett’s aunts
Three oil paintings of grandfather Edward Divett senior and his two sisters [presumably Mary and Anne]
Two crayons of father as a young man and uncle [John] Divett as a boy
Sir George Hayter oil sketch of George Ross Divett’s father Edward Divett junior for the Great Picture ‘Reformed House of Commons’
Small crayon of George Ross Divett’s father Edward Divett jun
Two engravings and two portraits of Sir John and Lady Charlotte Guest
Two crayons of great grandfather and his wife [John Divett senior and Mary Marchant]
Three watercolours of my brother sisters and myself [George Ross Divett] – John or Edward, George Ross Julia Mary and Adela
Oil painting of grandfather George Ross
Seven miniatures of my father Edward Divett mother Ann Ross Mrs John Divett,[ Henrietta Buller]my grandfather [Edward Divett senior] , grandmother[possibly Mary Kensington or , Mrs Wentworth Buller[ Ann Divett], and Miss Crossman
Thorvaldsen’s marble busts of my grandfather [Edward Divett senior] , my father [Edward Divett junior], my uncle[John Divett] as a boy and my two aunts [Mary and Ann] – the one of Edward Divett senior circa 1817 is in the Bertil Thorvaldsen museum ref April. The Thorvaldsen museum has informed me that one of the marble busts was offered to them in 1932.
Clay model on a pedestal of Thomas Divett MP
Sir William Boscall oil painting of Edward Divett junior who was George Ross Divett’s father
From Mary Divett’s will of 1914 I know she had two watercolours :-
Richmond watercolour portrait of John Divett
Richmond watercolour portrait of Mrs Divett [ Henrietta Buller] and Mary Divett
Does anyone know where they might be as it would be lovely for Bovey Tracey to have an image of John Divett or his family.
