Portrait of Hannah (Mrs. Charles) Tudway by Thomas Gainesborough. 1760-1765 oil on canvas. The graceful folds and smocking of the dress fabric in this painting is wonderful. The sitter was a lace maker, which explains the tatting thimble she holds and the three layers of lace on her sleeves. In the collection of the Baltimore Museum of Art, MD. Photo by Bruce Guthrie.
