Henrietta Howard poses like numerous aristocratic Ladies did in a simple luxurious dress in this 1724 Jervas portrait.
Henrietta wears a casual dress with a split bodice held together by a clasp. Her over-sleeves show a characteristic of the early 1700s - cuffs. Her dress may have a saque back associated with turn-of-the-century artist Antoine Wateau.
