not treat women differently. His sitters are people first. Their gender has no bearing on how he sees them. Sadly one of his greatest female portraits, that of Elizabeth Montague, could not be borrowed, but the portrait here of Elizabeth St Aubyn is a very similar composition. There was nothing dowdy about the bluestockings. Dressed in muted pink and blue, with wide, white lace sleeves and a black lace shrug, she is the epitome of grace as a social quality.
