1781-1782 Lady Cunliffe by Thomas Hoppner (National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, USA)

This work is located in Washington, DC. Prolonged residency there is known to be highly hazardous to one's moral health. One symptom is having a proclivity for revolving doors; another is a burdensomely heavy wallet; yet another is blinding myopia. A suspected cause is too many free lunches, trips, premium tickets to sporting events, and hot business tips from those on the inside. There are some who disagree with this broadly accepted etiology - for example Messers. Roberts, Alito, and Scalia. They may, however, also subscribe to beliefs that the Earth is flat, evolution did not occur, and global warming isn't happening.
