Lady Anne Lennard was the granddaughter of Charles II and one of his favourite mistresses, Barbara Villiers (1641–1709), through Barbara’s first child, Lady Anne Palmer 'otherwise Fitzroy' (1661–1722) and Thomas Lennard, Lord Dacre (d.1715). Thomas Murray aimed to emphasise Lady Anne’s youth through her almost fragile and graceful looks. The view opens to a landscape, the young lamb and the flowers possibly echo the aristocracy’s view of the idyllic life of shepherds and shepherdesses.
