This portrait was painted five years after Matilda Talbot presented Lacock to the National Trust. She had inherited the property on her uncle's death in 1916. Matilda Talbot was fascinated by the history of Lacock and in 1932 she held a pageant to commemorate the 700th anniversary of the foundation of the Abbey; she posed as Ela, the Countess of Salisbury. During the Second World War Maltilda had 85 evacuee children living and learning in Lacock.
