Watercolour on ivory; oval
Bequeathed by Mrs Lisa Puckle in memory of her father, Sir Nevil Macready, 1983
Christine Ann Birch was the mother of William Charles Macready. She married William Macready Snr (1755-1829) in June 1786.
[The attribution to Cosway is perhaps less likely than one to Nathaniel Plimer (1757-1822) or Samuel Shelley (1750/7-1808)]
