18th century couple

Lieutenant Joan Abercrombie in uniform, with her husband who wears a pearl and pink dress.

After Allan Ramsay.

  1. Very high quality and seamless.

    I love the idea of the genderquake happening just before these portraits - the delicious process of dragging the former Lieutenant out of his magnificent uniform (love the hat)and forcing him into his new role, forgetting all of his training and experience and education. and then - the NEW clothes he must wear! (That wig looks quite different with his new look)

    My favorite of all is the Duke of Wellington, so wonderfully haughty. And oh those boots - just begging to be feminized...
