1783 Lady Williams and Child, by Ralph Earl (Metropolitan Museum - New York City, New York USA)

Lady Williams is casually dressed, very plainly compared to other aristocratic sitters on both sides of the Channel, in this Earl portrait. Her hair is un-powdered and her skirt appears to be unsupported.
