Cavendish sisters reunited after 100 years

We are delighted to announce that our pastels portrait of Lady Henrietta Cavendish of 1790 by John Russell, is now destined to join that of her sister, Georgiana, bought last year by the Nationalmuseum in Stockholm, and soon they will hang alongside each other there, as they did at the Royal Academy in 1790. The portraits were last exhibited together in Paris at the Galerie Georges Petit in 1908 at the Exposition de cent Pastels du XVIII siècle.
