  For sale:     Portrait of
Admiral Marriot Arbuthnot. Table B
I have just acquired a portrait of Admiral Mariot Arbuthnot by Thomas Beach (1738-1806), the portrait has just been cleaned and restored. I wonder whether any of your Arbuthnot connections would be interested in purchasing (probable price range 8,000-12,000).  The portrait is oil on canvas and it measures 30 x 25in. It is recorded in the National Portrait Gallery archives and was until recently in the Beach collection, Reading.  Biography.   I am based in Central London, near the Tate Modern and would be delighted to show the portrait to interested Arbuthnots.
