She became the mistress of Louis François Joseph, Prince of Conti, by whom she had two illegitimate children, born in 1761 and 1767.

She debuted with her sister at the Comédie-Italienne in Paris in 1744. The Veronese sisters are considered two of the most notable interpreters of the soubrette-parts of the commedia dell'arte. They were known as Corallina (Coraline in French) and Camilla, respectively, after their standard parts. Anna was particularly known for her quick costume changes.

Brig Yacht Wanderer.

O.W. Brierly, del et lith. Day & Hague Lith:
Edmund Fry & Son, London & Edmund Fry Jn.r Plymouth [n.d. c.1840].
Tinted lithograph with hand colour. Sheet 380 x 510mm (15 x 20"). Paper lightly toned.
The schooner 'Wanderer' on route to Australia in 1841. On board was Benjamin Boyd (1801-51), the owner of the yacht, and the artist Oswald Walters Brierly (1817-94). Ben Boyd, a stockbroker, hoped to capitalise on the resources of Australia. He had founded the Royal Bank of Australia in London, but, when he arrived in Port Jackson in 1842, he used the money raised for his own purposes rather than operate a true bank. He bought flocks and took up squatter's rights, becoming one of the largest landowners in the colony, established Boydtown at Twofold Bay, a port from which he could co-ordinate his shipping, whaling and pastoral interests. In 1847 he imported a number of Pacific islanders as cheap labour, which failed as the islanders had no idea what was expected of them and made Boyd unpopular with the European settlers. When anti-squatter laws were introduced Boyd's finances failed, and in 1848 he lost control of the Royal Bank of Australia, which was placed in the hands of a liquidator the following year. Boyd then left Australia on the 'Wanderer' to try his luck on the Californian goldfields. Disappointed in America, he set sail to cruise the Pacific but disappeared on a visit to Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands in October 1851, with rumours that he had been killed by cannibals. The 'Wanderer' was wrecked off Port Macquarie upon its return to Australia. Oswald Brierly remained in Australia also, managing Boyd's whaling station at Twofold Bay 1842-48, before making a two-year voyage with Captain Owen Stanley on HMS Rattlesnake recording surveys of the Great Barrier Reef, Torres Strait, parts of New Guinea and the Louisiade Archipelago. He then sailed with Henry Keppel on HMS Meander to New Zealand, Tahiti and South America before returning to England. Brierly visited Australia again in 1867-8 when he accompanied the first Royal visit of HRH Prince Alfred Duke of Edinburgh on HMS Galatea during its royal tour.

Benjamin West, Esq.r President of the Royal Academy.
Engraved by H. Meyer, from an original Picture by T. Lawrence, Esq. R.A. For the fourteenth Number of the British Gallery of Contemporary Portraits.
Published April 13. 1813, by T. Cadell & W. Davies, Strand, London.
Very fine stipple engraving, plate 375 x 320mm (14¾ x 12½"), with very large margins.
Benjamin West (1738-1820) American painter of historical scenes. In 1760 he became the first American painter to travel to Italy, spending three years there. West met George III's librarian Joseph Dalton in 1762, who gave him a royal commission to paint the lovers Cymon and Iphigenia. It was partly due to Dalton's encouragement that West arrived in London, where he was to spend the rest of his career. In 1768 West played an instrumental role with the king in obtaining patronage for a Royal Academy of Arts, joining other charter members in helping to elect Reynolds as its first president. Eventually, despite his American origins, West became historical painter to the king in 1772, surveyor of the king's pictures in 1791, and second president of the Royal Academy in 1792, after Reynolds's death.
