Scope and content

Three quarter length pencil sketch of a woman standing in front of a low table, with highlights in coloured chalk. The woman has been identified as Lady Amelia Falkland, the owner of the album. Hayter exhibited a group portrait of seven FitzClarence children at the RA in 1832. There is an extant group portrait of nine FitzClarence children owned by Mrs. M. A. Lovett, which may be the portrait listed at the RA.
Most importantly, there is a sketch of Amelia FitzClarence by Hayter for the extant group portrait (exh. at Morton Morris & Co., 1982). Although the pose is different from the album sketch, there is a resemblance.
Eighteen-thirty was the year of the accession of Falkland's father, William IV. It was also the year she married Lucius Bentinck Cary, 10th Viscount Falkland. For more information on Falkland see artist file #705-138.
As an illegitimate daughter of William IV, Falkland could not commission the most popular court artists. Hayter, like Burgess and Ziegler, was a less important court painter. His brother George (1792-1871) was the more popular of the two.
