Lady Isabella Leigh of Adlington by John Vanderbank (Atkinson Art Gallery Collection - Sefton UK)

Who was she? I don't know. She shared her name with a Lady-in-waiting to Katherine Howard, short-time wife of Henry VIII. Outside of this portrait, there seems to be nothing about her.


Lady Isabella strikes a British Ice Queen pose for this John Vanderbank portrait.
