Oh, I’m in love! What a beauty!
some day I will make this pink and black polka dotted dress and I shall laugh constantly whilst wearing it.

Ah, what a charming little cap. I don’t think there is anything in the world that isn’t improved by a simple blue silk ribbon!
Mrs. Andrew Ellicott by Jacob Eichholtz, 1809. Via the New York Historical Society.
What a charming little cap! The blue ribbon is making me swoony…
Archduchess Maria Amalia of Austria by John Zoffany.
Undated, but my guess is late 1780s based on that amazing hat.

Mrs. William De Peyster, Jr. (Christiana Dally) by Charles Wilson Peale, 1798. Via the New York Historical Society.
The mother-in-law of the artist, one of my favorites of the 18th Century. Mostly because of his masterful depiction of clothing (look at that gorgeous neckerchief!)
Mrs. James Duane (1738-1821) by Ralph Earl, 1787. Via the New York Historical Society.
“Mary Livingston, the daughter of Robert Livingston, Jr., the third Lord of Livingston Manor, was married to James Duane on October 21, 1759. This portrait, although reversed, is virtually identical to Earl’s painting of Mrs. Alexander Hamilton, now in the Museum of the City of New York. Both portraits were apparently completed while Earl was in debtor’s prison in New York.”
Is anyone else totally in love with the idea of Ralph Earl painting this amazing portrait from Debtor’s Prison?
