The sitter in the present lot is possibly Catherine, Lady Manners née Grey, the daughter of Francis Grey and Elizabeth Ruddock. On 12 January 1790, she married William, Lord Huntingtower, known as Sir William Manners, by whom she had nine children. In 1794, she was painted by Sir Thomas Lawrence, P.R.A., but his depiction of her as Juno was not to her liking and she refused to pay for the portrait. Lawrence exhibited it at the Royal Academy in 1794, but it did not sell and remained in his collection until after his death. It is now in the collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art, Cleveland, Oh. (inv. no. 1961:220).
