Catalogue Note

The sitter of this portrait appears to be either Lady Henrietta Somerset or Ms. Charlotte Greenville, the first and second wives of Sir Watkin Williams-Wynn, respectively. Reynolds painted Sir Watkin and his family on multiple occasions, since he was an important 18th Century patron of the arts. Examples of such works by Reynolds are a Portrait of Sir Watkin Williams-Wynn (1749-1789) and Henrietta (Somerset), Lady Williams-Wynn (1748-1769) and Portrait of Charlotte (Grenville), Lady Williams-Wynn (1754-1830) both in the National Wales Museum, Cardiff (inv. nos. NMW A 12965 and NMW A 12964).
