Further Reading
  • The popular title, 'Collina', refers to the little hill on which Lady Gertrude stands. Lady Gertrude was the younger sister of Lady Anne Fitzpatrick, who was painted by Reynolds c.1775; a miniature copy in enamel by Bone of this portrait is also in the Wallace Collection (M19). Both miniatures may have been acquired by the 3rd Marquess of Hertford for their quality as works of art, but perhaps a friendship between the Hertford and Upper Ossory families explains their presence in the 3rd Marquess's collection.
