Full length, standing, full face, holding a fan in her right hand, wearing a white silk dress patterned with gold quatrefoils studded with pearls.
Note R J B Walker, THE CONNOISSEUR, April 1957, p.164. A watercolour drawing is in the Scrapbook, p.5 and, with Lord Audley, p.74. This in fact is a portrait not of the Duchess of Norfolk, whose real portrait by Eworth (see 81031039) is quite unrelated, but of the Maid of Honour (possibly Lady Anne Russell) who follows the Queen in the painting 'a procession of Queen Elizabeth in about 1600' at Sherbourne Castle. Rebecca pirated the portrait shamelessly and with no acknowledgement, probably using either Vertue`s engraving of circa 1737 or an 18th century copy by Ranelagh.
