Not on view

Russell was England's leading pastellist in the later eighteenth century. He studied under Francois Cotes and from 1769 to 1806 exhibited annually at the Royal Academy, of which he was a member. This portrait and a companion piece showing the sitter's husband were executed to celebrate the couple's fortieth anniversary.
