Lady with a mandolin

 

Another of the Hussey-Delaval daughters, Sophia Ann Delaval who appears to have been less of a hussey, since she settled down quite happily with a Mr. John Jadis.  The painting is by a local, Newcastle painter, William Bell, who subsequently pursued his career in London - http://www.bbc.co.uk/arts/yourpaintings/paintings/sophia-anne-delaval-17551793-later-mrs-jadis-tuning-a-man170887

 

I thought the instrument was a lute, but it turns out to have been a mandolin.

She could be a bit of a hussy, too, Tom.
Tom Wilson: One never knows, Ray - and in this case, one probably never will smile
it's a beautiful painting Tom... and you framed it perfectly....petersmile
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Peter, yes, I believe the artist was local and relatively unknown, but he could certainly produce an excellent portrait!

I wonder if this one was better behaved Tom?
Tom Wilson: Possibly - I'll have to try to find out what her name was and what happened to her. After a bit of a search, I discover that she is Sophia Ann Delaval, who married a Mr. John Jadis, of whom I have been unable to find anything :-0 The artist was a local man, William Bell, of Newcastel, who later pursued his career in London
a very well done painting, Tom
Tom Wilson: It is indeed, Ayush - a little appreciated master, it seems.
Quite a beautiful painting Tom!
I love the faces looking so porcelain.
