Catalogue Note

The Honorable Emma Crewe was the daughter of John, 1st Lord Crewe and Frances Anne Greville, a famously beautiful Whig hostess. Sir Joshua Reynolds painted Anne several times as well as Emma's son John, 2nd Lord Crewe, who posed as Henry VIII. This portrait was likely made toward the end of Hoppner's career, before Emma's marriage to Foster Cunliffe Offley in 1809. A smaller version of this painting is in a private collection in England.
