This is a large miniature for the hand of Lens and shows a mature hand. The sitter is shown wearing an exquisite green dress with elaborate gold embroidery suggesting that she is a lady of considerable wealth.
Lens was the miniature painter at the courts of kings George I and George II, instructor in miniature painting (then called limning) to prince William and princesses Mary and Louise and consultant in fine arts to upper-class families.
