This work in a private collection is considered close to Lawrence, c.1815-20, but the artist and sitter are so far unidentified. The frame is believed to be French, c.1800-25; the label on the reverse is from the workshop of Samuel Coombe, 331 Strand, London.

    This painting, or a very similar one was in Country Life Feb 27 1962 p 458, where it was suggested that the portrait should be attributed to Richard Westall (1765-1836).

    Sir Thomas Lawrence was taught by Sir Joshua Reynolds. Lawrence in turn helped William Robinson (1799-1839). I have had restored WR’s portrait of his wife which was in a similar sad state. (Handed down from WR’s sister’s side). The styles of Reynolds and Lawrence run through this period so the portrait of a lady could have been by any of their students.
