Hester Lynch Salusbury (1741-1821), a Welsh-born diarist, author and patron of the arts. After marrying the rich brewer Henry Thrale she became friends with Samuel Johnson, travelling with him to Wales in 1774. After his death she published 'Anecdotes of the Late Samuel Johnson' (1786) and their letters to each other (1788), both important sources about Johnson's life. Henry Thrale died in 1781 (shortly after Reynolds painted this portrait, showing Hester aged 40); she married Gabriel Mario Piozzi, an Italian music teacher, in 1784.
