Frances Tucker Montresor (portrait by Copley, 1778) (1744–1826)... (Titam et le beau siècle)
1778 Frances Montresor by John Copley. For her portrait, Mrs. John Montresor wore a costume that was in the latest style, a female riding habit adapted from the military uniform. The tall headdress topped off with an elegant black hat trimmed with feathers was also the height of fashion. Copley's 1771portrait of Mr. John Montresor shows him in a pensive mood, whereas Mrs. Montresor poses in a classical profile redolent of antique cameos and coins.
