Lady Catherine Powlet, daughter of his Grace the Duke of Bolton
Not on view
Lady Catherine Powett is shown seated with a greyhound, wearing a loose robe with pearls in her short, curly hair. A curtain and rosebush are used to frame the figure and a landscape seen in the distance. The sitter was second daughter and coheiress of the 6th Duke of Bolton and his second wife Catherine Lowther. Her obituary (Gentleman's Magazine, 1807, pp. 679-80) praises her beauty which "afforded a most gratifying subject to the pencils of a Cosway and a Reynolds, [yet] she never betrayed the smallest symptom of vanity."
