A portrait of writer Hester Chapone, (17271801), wearing a cloak tied at the neck and a brimmed hat. Hester was educated more thoroughly than most girls of the period, learning French, Italian and Latin, and wrote a romance at the age of nine, 'The Loves of Amoret and Melissa', which earned her mother's disapproval. She began writing regularly and corresponding with other writers at the age of 18. Her earliest published works were four brief pieces of Samuel Johnson's journal 'The Rambler' in 1750. Chapone was most notably associated with the learned ladies or 'Bluestockings' who gathered around Elizabeth Montagu, and was the author of 'Letters on the Improvement of the Mind and Miscellanies'.
