Lady Alicia Conroy b&w and colored

The left image was found on eBay as one of the series of beauties associated with Queen Victoria's court. The right image is from www.antiques.co.uk/antique/Hand-Coloured-C1880-Portrait-Lady-Alicia-Conroy-Woman. The color image appears to be a colorization from around 1880 of one of the prints seen at the left.

Some biographical information can be found here.
