Probably an early study for a miniature, present location unknown. A drawing, signed and dated Aug 21 1819, at Sotheby's 25 May 1966 (16), was among six Hayter drawings of the Duchess, one a whole-length holding a violin. Henry Bone made an enamel after Hayter's original, probably that dated 1829 at Woburn; two Bone drawings for this enamel are in the NPG library (Henry Bone’s annotated pencil drawings for miniatures and enamels, I) - 62 an undated pen drawing on squared tracing paper, and 96 a small pencil drawing on squared paper dated May 1820; the miniature was engraved by J. H. Robinson though it differs slightly in hair-style.
