This is a stunning work by Smart before his departure to India. Smart can be considered to be the leading miniature artist in England at the end of the 18th and beginning of the 19th century.
Although the sitter is unknown the elaborate pearl edged green silk dress coupled with the ermine bordered pink coat indicates that she clearly was a lady of fashionable taste and considerable wealth.
