Exhibition history

1833 London, Queen's Bazaar, Oxford Street, "Mr Mathews's Gallery of Theatrical Portraits" (329)

The sitter wears a pink dress and an elaborate coiffure typical of the late 1770s. Despite the inscription, her identity is not secure. Mathews 329 appears amidst a group of miniatures and might easily be this small and doubtful work.
