This is a full-length portrait of the eldest daughter of William Woodley (1728–1793) and Frances Payne (1738–1813). She is standing elegantly in a landscape setting, leaning against a pedestal covered with a crimson cloth, wearing white edged with gold. According to the artist's records of sittings, the work was painted during the winter of 1780/1781, before Frances Woodley, 'one of the most remarkable beauties of the day', married Henry Bankes the younger (1757–1834) in 1784.
