1741 Lady Mary Fairfax by Philippe Mercier (Fairfax House - York, North Yorkshire UK)

I cannot find anything about her, other than this portrait that is. She may be drowned out by another Mary Fairfax.

From the-athenaeum.org; image made lighter by gogm.

Lady Mary's dressmaker made this to show several cm of chemise at the neckline as well as at the sleeves and cuffs.
