ca. 1745 Frances Macartney, later Greville by George Knapton (private collection)

Frances is an elegant peasant girl in this black, white, and pink dress complete with apron in this Knapton portrait from around 1745. The sheer under-bodice, sleeves, and apron suggest her dress is not meant for sustained farm work.
