Of supreme importance is this full-length Highland dress portrait of Archibald, Lord Montgomerie, The Earl of Eglinton and Winton. Eldest son of the 12th Earl, Montgomerie entered the army as Ensign in the 42nd Regiment, eventually becoming a Lieutenant Colonel in the Glasgow Regiment, prior to its disbanding in 1795.

This portrait was among the artist’s last works, reputedly commissioned by the sitter to revitalise her career after her business declined during the French occupation of Rome.
