Mrs. Robert Shurlock Sr. (Ann Manwaring)

John Russell British

Not on view

Mrs. Shurlock was the mother of Robert Shurlock, the artist's son-in-law. This portrait of her taking snuff is one of several pastels made by Russell for his daughter's family. The handling of the sitter's face is smooth and even, while her bonnet and dress reveal a more rigorous application of the medium with greater evidence of the artist's stroke.
