This exhibition in our Lift Gallery, displays a group of three pastel drawings and can be attributed with some certainty to the talented draughtswoman Lady Helena Rawdon, née Perceval (1717–46). They were originally presented en suite with a rare image of a female pastellist at work, possibly depicting Lady Helena herself. Accompanying the portrait of A Sybil, this display includes copies of the Four Seasons made by Lady Helena after the Venetian Rococo painter Rosalba Giovana Carriera (1673–1757), entitled Winter and Summer.
