  • This miniature is based, with variations in the costume, on the state portrait by L. M. Van Loo painted in 1761. Another miniature, following the Van Loo more closely, is in the collection of H.M. The Queen at Windsor Castle, signed by J. D. Welper. This miniature does not appear to be by the same hand.
