Seated before a dark brown curtain with classical colonnade and landscape background, wearing a satin lilac coloured dress trimmed with lace at the sleeves and bodice. She plays a finely veneered guitar
set in the original ormolu frame with inner beaded border

The presence of 6 strings on the guitar suggests a date circa 1780/90 when 6 strings were first introduced on the instrument
Some old crackling to paint in the background
