Mrs. Turnor (stet) sits on a stone bench with vista of handsome estate behind her (a tapestry, perhaps?), holding sprays of flowers and fruits in her hands. Her coiffure and dress are quite casual: her hair is pulled back but several ringlets cascade over her right shoulder and onto her breast, and her clothing is a simple decollete white garment with sleeves to the elbow, covered on one arm and the lap with a loose cape. (Virginia K. Anderson 03/11/94)
