Ann Emma Lindfield
Aged eighteen, Ann Emma Lindfield is keen to show off her education and her love of literature as demonstrated by her open book. She is dressed in the fashion of the day in a dress with ‘imbecile’ sleeves and a wide draped neckline that emphasises her teeny waistline. Her hair too is à la mode with tightly rolled curls and a plaited knot.
Inscribed on the backing paper – ‘Miss Ann Emma Lindfield / Taken at 18 Years old July 182? / Died Jany 1836’, the portrait is presented in the original reeded frame. Excellent condition.
