1786 Miss Hodgson by John Downman (Bonham's)

I cannot find out anything about her except she had a bother John who was a Major General.

Image darkened to bring out details.

Miss Hodgson's coiffure is a sculptural work of art crowned with feathers adding a full 30 cm or so of height. She appears to be wearing a fichu and deep vee waistline. She wears a large bow and long tight sleeves ending in cuffs edged with two rows of ruffles.
