Catalogue Note

These two portraits date to circa 1770, a time when Pierre-Joseph Lion, who was Belgian by birth, had moved to England and was known to be working for the Duke of Newcastle-under-Lyme. Lady Lincoln died in 1760, and it has been suggested that her portrait is a copy after a lost pastel by William Hoare of Bath, R.A. (1707-1792). We are grateful to Neil Jeffares for his help when cataloguing this lot.
