Colonel Sir Banastre Tarleton (1754–1833), Sir Joshua Reynolds, National Portrait Gallery

Mrs. Grace Dalrymple Elliott (1754?–1823), 1778, Thomas Gainsborough (English, Sudbury 1727–1788 London). This full-length of the statuesque Mrs. Elliott—a Scottish lady of great beauty but easy virtue—was apparently commissioned by her lover, the first marquis of Cholmondeley, and was exhibited at the R.A. in 1778. Its elegance, delicate coloring, and fluid handling reflect the influence of Van Dyck. (c) Metropolitan Museum of Art
