LAWRENCE, Sir Thomas (1769-1830). Painter and draughtsman.
Autograph Letter Signed to an unnamed correspondent, 2 pages 8vo, Russell Square, 10 March 1826. Postponing the sitting of Lady Georgiana because he must attend a meeting of the Trustees of the British Museum ('on an urgent occasion when absence would have great appearance of impropriety').

Lawrence painted his celebrated portrait of Lady Georgiana Fane in about 1806; it is now in the Tate Britain. His pastel portrait of Georgiana, duchess of Devonshire, which is at Chatsworth, was painted in 1782. The portrait of Georgiana Maria Leicester, Lady de Tabley (as 'Hope'), 1811, is at Tabley House in Knutsford, Cheshire. There is also another Georgiana painted by Lawrence, Lady Georgiana Agar Ellis. And perhaps more.
