Lot Essay

The present painting is typical of Sandys' highly-detailed female head portraits; the Eastern dress and fig tree suggest that it may portray a character from the Bible such as Miriam the prophetess who 'took a timbrel in her hand' as the Israelites crossed the Red Sea out of Egypt (Exodus 15:20).
