Footnotes

  • From a photograph, John Wilson suggests that a few details, such as the elongated neck and the bright tone of the colour of the lips and bodice, point to the present portrait being by a follower of Sir Thomas Lawrence. He also states, however, that the marvellous characterizition of the sitters is unlike Lawrence and does not rule out the possibility that it is by Hoppner (email dated 10th September, 2004).
