Charlotte Bettesworth, Mrs John Sargent
Portrait of a seated female figure. She gazes out of the picture plane, making eye contact with the viewer. She wears a white, long-sleeved dress trimmed with lace around the collar and cuffs, with a pink sash. Her hair is partially covered by a head scarf. She has a red jewelled brooch pinned to the centre of her bodice. Her hands are folded, resting on a closed book, and she holds a quill between them.
