'The sportive, heedless, happy, and when she chose it, captivating Lady Clarges', is Fanny Burney’s description of the sitter. Lady Clarges was an accomplished singer and harpist. She owned several harps and made regular trips to Italy to pursue her musical interests. She and her husband, Sir Thomas, promoted outstanding foreign musicians in England.
