Catalogue Note

We are grateful to Richard Shone for his kind assistance with the cataloguing of the present work.

The Duchess had this work hanging in her bedroom at Chatsworth, she writes (op. cit. p. 165) 'Lismore [Castle] is hung too high to see Mrs Hammersley in the shadow of the Irish yew, but she is there all right wrapped in shawls as usual.'
