A fine early 19th-century portrait of a lady wearing a beautiful pink dress, two pearl necklaces and earrings. Her hair is swept back into a large fashionable bun and her elegant attire fits the fashion-a-la-mode.

The artist has skillfully captured her expression - there’s the hint of a smile and a rouging of the cheeks. Her head is tilted and suggests movement, which brings a sense of vivacity to the piece.

The portrait is monogrammed 'PL' on the left and housed within a period frame that could be the original.
