1833 Elizabeth, Duchess of Sutherland by S. Freeman after T. Phillips

This is said to be the notorious Duchess of Sutherland, but it is more likely her daughter Elizabeth. Elizabeth Gordon was born in 1765 and this portrait shows a young woman. Her daughter Elizabeth was born in 1797.

From Le Voyage en Papier - Marc Dechow.

The sitter is casually dressed in post-Revolutionary style this print. As in her 1816 Lawrence portrait, her dress has a partlet-like modesty piece.
