Abstract:
"A lady, young and handsome, stands in profile to the left holding a closed fan in both hands. She wears one garment only, a quasi-classical tunic, its waist immediately below the breasts which are almost bare. It is slit at the side to show a leg with gartered stocking. Her hair is bound with a ribbon and falls loosely on forehead and shoulders. In it are three ostrich feathers. A panelled wall, with a candle-sconce and showing part of a large mirror (left), forms a background. There is a patterned carpet. Perhaps a portrait of Lady C. Campbell."--British Museum online catalogue.
