This early 19th-century stipple engraving by George Kellaway (fl. 1821-1828) is after a painting by Thomas Stewardson (1781-1859).

She turns and looks towards the heavens with hair tumbling over her lavish renaissance dress. Jewels adorn a headpiece, topped with a feather. While her right hand gently plucks the strings of a fine mandolin.

Given the outfit, it’s likely that she’s an actress depicted by Stewardson following a successful stage appearance. The Victorians loved the theatre and sought to decorate their walls with images of well-known thespians. If you know the play, do tell us.

Published in 1828 by W. J. White, Engraver, 14 Brownlow Street, Holborn, London.

Held in a contemporary frame and glazed.
