- Curator's comments
- There is no certainty to the sitter's identity. In the second state she is identified as 'Madam Plowden', possibly Sarah Chicheley or, as CS suggests, a wife of William Plowden, a colonel in the Life Guards of James II. In the third state considerable alterations have been made to the sitter's appearance, suggesting a different subject; CS suggests Margaret Nicholls.
This impression features numerous additional details to the print made in pencil.
