Abstract:
Portrait showing Susanna Oakes, who ran the circulating library at Ashbourne from about 1795 until 1801, seated in a ladder-back chair with a backdrop of shelved books. She is seated beside an occasional table, her quill pen within reach, in an attitude of contemplative thought. Her left arm is clearly seen to have a muscle wasting disease, and a cane resting against the chair confirms some form of disability.
