1780s (late) Maria Tryphena Blunt, Lady Cockerell by George Engelhart (Fitzwilliam Museum - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire UK)

Her article in thepeerage is here. She married in March 1789 and passed away later that year.

Lady Maria's dress shows a hint of a tent bodice. This and her long coiffure are signs that the British are not conceding to French Revolutionary style. The blue ribbons seem to be a modest revival of Renaissance era rolled or tabbed sleeves.
