Portrait of Unknown Lady believed to be from the Bedingfeld family, Oxburgh Hall

Thought to be a member of the Bedingfeld family. Painted in 1748 by the artist John Theodore Heins (1697-1756) of Norwich.  Located in the Drawing room at Oxburgh Hall, Norfolk (National Trust). The subject is a young woman, shown half-length, with a blue mantle and a white dress. The figure turns slightly to her left, but her head and gaze are turned to face the viewer. The pushed-up sleeve reveals a lace-edged under sleeve and she wears no jewellery. Her fichu is lace edged and her blue mantle is loosely hung over her shoulder. She is surrounded by a trompe d'oeil oval frame. The background is dark. The gilt frame is carved wood and gesso. 76.2cm x 60.4cm.
