Portrait of Miss Elizabeth Hemyng
- Art Funded
- 53 x 41 cm
- Romulus Antiques
This portrait is of a slightly forbidding spinster wearing a fashionable, Spitalfields silk open robe of yellow and white, which can be dated 1738-42.
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.
