Catalogue Note

This watercolour probably dates from the early 1870s. When it was purchased in Paris in 1923, the sitter was identified as Lady Mary Craven, who was probably Evelyn Mary, second daughter of the 2nd Earl of Craven. She married George Brudenell Bruce in 1862, heir to the 3rd Marquess of Ailesbury. Following his death in 1868 she married Captain Henry Beauclerk Coventry; they divorced in 1877 and she married George Hutton Riddell of Muselee in Roxburghsire.
