An unknown Lady


Artist: Luke Sullivan

Wearing a pink dress with white underslip, a black ribbon choker secured with pink ribbon under her upswept brown hair
Set in the original gold bracelet claps frame

Paul Caffrey notes that Sullivan often painted his sitters in a pose where they looked away from the viewer in the distance. The sitter's tall, highly dressed hair adds to the sense of elegance associated with Sullivan's work

Sitters for his miniatures included such fashionable figures as the Earl of Bute and the Duchess of Lennox, but according to Strutt, 'being much addicted to women, his chief practice lay among the girls of the town' (Strutt, 347).
