    A beautiful, troubled face Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire by Thomas Gainsborough. Gainsborough's society portraits can be subtly and disturbingly intuitive. Scattered among the world's great museums, Gainsborough's portraits are a historical record of Britain's 18th century rich and famous. He once remarked that he doubted they had hearts.

    Lady Georgiana Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire, painted by Thomas Gainsborough in 1787, 13 years into her highly publicized and disappointing marriage. Her life has often been compared to that of Princess Diana. Not only did both live in "love triangles" but they are both Spencer girls. This painting is on the cover of the British version of Amanda Foreman's book, which was the basis for the subsequently made film, "The Duchess" starring the superb Keyra Knightly and Ralph Fiennes.
