A portrait of Lady Hampden
1700 to 1800 United Kingdom
Offered by Ellison Fine Art
Margaret Bingham, Countess of Lucan was a British painter, copyist, and poet. As an artist, Bingham often copied the work of others, as well as painting portrait miniatures. Her work was collected in the United Kingdom and in France. In Paris she was given access to the Palais-Royal to copy works of the artists on display there, which were owned by the Duke of Orléans. Her foremost work was to supply miniatures and illuminations for a five-volume edition of Shakespeare's historical plays, for the library at Althorp, Northamptonshire. This took 16 years to complete
