A full-length portrait of a lady in a pink dress with a swather of material billowing from her shoudlers. Mrs. Musters is feeding an eagle.

Reynolds was one of the earliest members of the Royal Society of Arts, helped found the Society of Artists of Great Britain, and in 1768 became the first President of the Royal Academy of Arts, a position he was to hold until his death. In 1769, he was knighted by George III, only the second artist to be so honored.
