Literature K. Garlick, Sir Thomas Lawrence, Boston 1955, p.52; K. Garlick, 'A Catalogue of the Paintings, Drawings and Pastels of Sir Thomas Lawrence', in The Walpole Society, vol. XXXIX, Glasgow 1964, p. 152; K. Garlick, Sir Thomas Lawrence, a complete catalogue of the oil paintings, Oxford 1989, p. 246, cat. no. 609 (b), reproduced. Catalogue Note Lady Georgina North was the third daughter of the 3 Earl of Guilford and sat for Lawrence on three different occasions. The first, circa 1806-07, was for a portrait with her sister, Susan, Countess of Guilford, a painting today in the J.B. Speed Art Museum, Louisville, Kentucky. The present portrait was the last of the three portraits and was painted in 1828, towards the end of the artist’’s life. On his death in 1830 Lawrence left many unfinished paintings in his studio. A large number of them were completed by his studio in preparation for sale. The present work fortunately escaped un-tampered, however, and as such retains a remarkable sense of vividness and modernity, in particular in the artist’’s bravura and unrestrained treatment of the sitter’’s dress.

Hon. The Lady Ribblesdale'), London, Christie's, 10 July 1953, lot 9, to Agnew for £420; With Thomas Agnew & Sons, London; Peter Wilson (d. 1984), London; Private collection, England. Exhibited London, Royal Academy, Old Masters, Winter 1904, no. 92. Literature Rev H. L. Lyster Denny, Memorials of an Ancient House, 1913, p. 148, reproduced; Sir W. Armstrong, Lawrence, London 1913, p. 160; K. Garlick, Lawrence, London 1954, p. 55, Appendix II, 125, IV, 173; K.

A complete catalogue of the paintings, Oxford 1989, p. 257, no. 674, reproduced. The sitter was the son of Thomas Lister, of Gisburne Park, Yorkshire, and his wife Beatrix, daughter of Jessop Hulton of Hulton Park, Lancashire. Educated at Westminster and Brasenose College Oxford, he served as Member of Parliament for Clitheroe from 1773 to 1790. In 1775, at the outbreak of the American War of Independence he fitted out a frigate at his own expense which he placed at the disposal of the Government, and in 1779 fitted out a regiment of light horse called Lister’’’’s Light Dragoons and gazetted a Major in the army. In 1789 he married Rebecca, daughter and co-heir of Joseph Fielding, and in 1797 was created 1st Baron Ribblesdale of Gisburne. The family seat, Gisburne Park, situated in the Ribble Valley six miles north-east of Clitheroe, was built between 1727 and 1736, the manor having been first acquired by the Lister family in 1614. The house and estate passed from father to son until the death of Thomas Lister, 4th Baron Ribblesdale in 1925. A liberal politician, and a government whip in the House of Lords under Gladstone from 1880 to 1885, and Master of the Buckhounds under both Gladstone and Rosebery, the 4th Baron was a Trustee of the National Gallery from 1909 to 1925 and is remembered today from his famous portrait by John Singer Sargent (National Gallery, London). His two sons having both been killed in action, the eldest in Somaliland and the younger at Gallipoli in the First World War, he was survived by two sisters and his second wife, Ava Lowle Willing, the American socialite and former wife of John Jacob Astor IV. In 1944 the remaining estate was sold, and in 1985 the house was converted into a private hospital and rehabilitation centre. Painted circa 1805, a price of £126 is recorded in the Coutts list for this portrait. Lawrence’’’’s executor refers in his list to ‘Ports of late Ld. & Ldy Ribblesdale abt 30 yrs since 300 Gs each’’’’ 1 and it seems that the painting was originally intended to be one of a pair, together with a portrait of the sitter’’’’s wife. No full-length finished portrait of Rebecca, Lady Ribblesdale is known, however, and the pendant this picture is probably the unfinished head of Lady Ribblesdale, which has been cut down from a larger canvas, in the Ackland Art Museum, at the University of North Carolina.

Engraved In stipple by Caroline Watson, 1805 Born into a brewing family of St Ives in Huntingdonshire, Samuel Pratt (1749-1814) was ordained as a young man in the English church; a career which he abandoned not long after eloping with a 'pretty boarding school miss' named Charlotte. Not much is known of his wife but her maiden name was perhaps Melmoth, the pseudonym which Pratt later adopted for his acting and writing ventures. Under the name of Courtney Melmoth, Pratt trod the boards throughout the British Isles, including the Covent Garden theatre in 1774 and 1775, although he met with little success. After this he largely abandoned his stage career and took up writing. His publications varied enormously with Pratt writing on subjects ranging from landscape poetry to stage farces and humanitarian subjects. He died in Birmingham in October 1814 after falling from his horse earlier that year.
