The subject in this bust painting sits facing the spectator.

She wears a stiff, circular, white ruff. This painting was part of a collection of 117 works belonging to the industrialist and engineer F.D. Lycett Green and bequeathed to York through the Art Fund, in 1955, in recognition of the remarkable efforts made after the Second World War by its curator to transform it into a gallery of international importance.

Provenance

Strang collection; Sir William East Bt.; Miss Agnes Clayton East; F.D. Lycett Green.
