Portrait of Miss Elizabeth Hemyng

She seems to be holding a container of perfume. The room in which she sits is furnished in the middle-class manner of the time - austerely but elegantly.
The museum is now closed to undergo a major, transformational development project. It will reopen in spring 2020.
Throughout closure, the Geffrye's restored almshouse will remain open for tours and a full programme of events will be run in the front gardens.
