Portrait of Lady Lydia Acland

By Jennie Chancey

This is a sumptuously beautiful portrait of Lady Lydia Acland and her two sons (yes, sons!). The original hangs in the Music Room of the Acland’s ancestral home, Killerton House, Broadclyst. Note Lady Acland’s Shawl, which is tucked into the gold band at the empire waist. I love the rich color of her gown as well. Thank you to Daniel Milford-Cottam for the information on Lady Acland!
