dc.descriptionFrye was a clever and versatile artist (Strickland, Irish Artists, p 385) specializing in oil, crayon and miniature portraiture. He also was interested in porcelain manufacture and managed a factory outside London for fifteen years, establishing two patents there during his career. Following his retirement, he returned to art, focusing on mezzotint. He is chiefly known for his `fancy subjects?, a series of large heads published in 1760-61. The present painting is signed and dated centre left 'T. Frye Pinxt./1742'.en
