Description

This portrait of Queen Charlotte is a companion to a portrait of King George III, both of which survived in their original frames through the Turnbull family of Portland.

They were printed circa 1770 by Henry Overton, a map and print seller at Newgate, London, and are further distinguished by hand coloring.

The Queen is adorned in a red dress, ermine cape, and black bow, and crowned with a jeweled tiara.
