JERVAS Charles (b. ca. 1675, Dublin, d. 1739, London) Nationality : Irish

Irish painter and collector, active in England. From 1694 to 1695 he was Godfrey Kneller's pupil and assistant in London. Around 1698 he painted small copies (Oxford, All Souls, Codrington Lib.) of the Raphael cartoons at Hampton Court Palace, which he sold to Dr George Clarke of All Souls, Oxford. In 1699 he went to Rome via Paris, funded by Dr Clarke and others. In 1709 he returned to England and built up a successful practice as a fashionable portrait painter. He had literary ambitions and painted portraits of a number of his intellectual friends, including Jonathan Swift (1710) and Alexander Pope (both London, National Portrait Gallery).
