About this painting: 

The sitter is shown, in one of Batoni's most attractive portraits of a woman, in a grey travelling costume called a German habit or a Brunswick. This was adapted from the masculine riding habit and consisted of a jacket, here fitted to the body, and a skirt, usually of a matching fabric, in this case a grey silk. With its wrist-length sleeves and hood, this was a practical and yet feminine costume, with its ruched decoration and pink and white striped ribbons at the elbow, pinned into the lace jabot at the neck, and trimming the lace headdress. By the middle of the century such costumes had replaced for English women travellers the earlier more masculine riding habit. This type of dress is however unique in Batoni's work, and is only rarely portrayed by other artists, the exception being Francis Cotes in a number of portraits of this same decade. In his portraits of British women, Batoni discards the usual Grand Tour trappings, and the presentation here, as with the 'Louisa Grenville' is simple and direct. The portrait is very English in feeling, perhaps coming closest in reticence, and its delicacy both of coloring and of mood, to the female portraits of Allan Ramsay. Travel back in time and cross stitch this portrait.
