"25 x 30. No portraits better preserve their tone of color and expression that those of Stuart's. There is a living, fresh reality about them, and 'no one ever surpassed him in embodying, if we may so speak, the transient apparition of the soul.' This picture was formerly the property of Mr. Charles Elliot, who obtained it direct from the family for whom Mr. Stuart painted it. It is considered one of the finest specimens of the artist." [Price and buyer noted in contemporary hand.]
