Chaloner Smith suggests Jane Collier could be the sitter, adding that Bromley's identification of the lady as a courtesan, also known as Miss Stewart, has not been corroborated. Jane Collier (1714 March 1755) was an English novelist best known for her book An Essay on the Art of Ingeniously Tormenting (1753). She also collaborated with Sarah Fielding on her only other surviving work The Cry (1754).
