A young Lady with the Initials MEG, with powdered hair decorated with white bandeau, wearing a white dress, possibly her wedding dress, with lace border set in the original gold frame, the reverse with gold monogram MEG on brown plaited hair within gold mount and blue glass border
Perhaps a little faded this remains a good portrait by Barry whose work is characterised by the angular eyebrows, almost vertical brushstrokes on the faces and the rather mass-like appearance of the treatment of the hair. He exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1784-1827
