An attractive and detailed study of garden furniture at Petworth House, Sussex. Amelia Long (née Hume), Lady Farnborough (1772-1837). In 1793 she married Charles Long, created Baron Farnborough in 1826. An amateur etcher and a vigorous patron of the arts, she assisted the watercolourist Thomas Girtin (1775-1802) to make his one visit to Paris in 1801. Lady Farnborough was Girtin's favourite pupil, and her work was widely admired by professional artists and drawing masters. Her watercolours also show the influence of her contemporary John Varley.
