Portrait of Infanta Maria Josefa of Spain (1744-1801)
Portrait of a Roman Woman by Jean-Léon Gérôme, 1843.
Portrait of a Lady in Red probably 1460-70, Italian, Florentine
This portrait is one of the earliest and most impressive depictions of eighteenth century wedding wear. It shows Lady Frances Montagu in the bridesmaid’s dress she wore to the 1734 wedding of George II’s eldest daughter, Anne, the Princess Royal, to William IV, the Prince of Orange. The detail and complexity of the dress suggests us that the painting was commissioned as much to show the latest fashion as it was to show the sitter.
