ca. 1740 Lady, said to be Jenny Cameron of Lochiel by Allan Ramsay (Philip Mould)

Lady Cameron's(?) square neckline framed by a modesty piece makes this 1740 Ramsay work a chronicle of fashion of the day. Like the Cholmeley Lady portrayed at the same time, she wears a laced bodice decorated with bows.
