Footnotes

  • Elizabeth Berkeley was the daughter of Augustus 4th Earl of Berkeley. She married William Lord Craven on May 30th 1767, but the couple were not well-suited and separated in 1780, when Lady Craven went to live in Anspach. The cause of the separation was given as Lord Craven's infidelity, but his wife would appear to have been equally culpable. The Whig Club of 1794 speaks of her 'unblushing profligacy' and she was notorious as the mistress of the Margrave of Anspach.

Saleroom notices

  • The description should read Circle of George Romney, not as printed in the catalogue.
