Catalogue Note

The Viennese born dancer, Eva Maria Veigel, married the great British actor David Garrick in 1749. She sat for many of the most eminent artists of the period, including Reynolds and Liotard. In Reynold's portrait of her with her husband, painted in 1772-3, she is also depicting in pensive mood, with a hand raised to her brow.
