Eloise Harriet Stannard was a British painter who was born in 1829. Numerous works by the artist have been sold at auction, including 'Still life of fruit, a bullfinch and a butterfly; and Still life of fruit on a silver salver with a jug' sold at Christie's King Street 'British Pictures 1500-1850' in 2006 for $39,792. The artist died in 1914.
An oil painting by Eloise Stannard, one of the Norwich School of Painters, has been sold for £40,000.
The picture shows three pieces of the historic Norwich Civic Regalia Silver and was painted in 1869.
"This stunning picture is one of the best quality paintings we've handled in our 40 years," said Roy Murphy from Keys auction house in Aylsham.
The painting was sold to a private bidder but Keys has confirmed that it will remain in Norfolk.
The painting was sold by Roy Benton, one of five siblings to inherit the painting from their late father, also called Roy.
"Apparently Eloise Harriet Stannard could be seen walking down Elm Hill carrying pieces of the Regalia she was loaned to paint," said Roy Benton.
"These are some of the most important pieces of silver in the country. Norwich has one of the finest collections of civic regalia. It's extraordinary," he added.
The Norwich School of Painters was the first provincial art movement in Britain.
The painters were inspired by the natural beauty of the Norfolk landscape and reflected a realism based on direct observation.
A departure from the classical style of landscape painting, they were influenced stylistically by the Dutch painters of the 17th Century.
The society was founded in 1803 and from 1805 until 1833 held annual exhibitions of work in Norwich.
Other members of the movement included John Joseph Cotman and Joseph and Emily Stannard, parents of Eloise.
Eloise Harriet Stannard was born in 1829 and died in 1915.
