Summary

Oil painting on canvas, Anne Villiers, Lady Dalkeith, later Countess of Morton (d. 1654), manner of Sir Anthony Van Dyck (Antwerp 1599 - London 1641). The sitter was previously called Lady Ann Keith, Countess of Morton (d.1648) and catalogued as by Sir Peter Lely (Soest 1618 – London 1680). A half-length portrait of the niece of the 1st Duke of Buckingham and sister of his nephew, Sir William Villiers, 2nd Viscount Grandison (also a Van Dyck sitter). She is dressed in red silk with brunette curled hair, standing behind a parapet, in front of a plain stone wall and a landscape on the left; her left hand resting beside a pair of roses and fur stole her left shoulder. She was married in 1627 to Robert, 8th Earl of Morton, known as 'Lord Dalkeith', until he succeeded his father in 1648. They had two sons: the 9th Earl of Morton, and Robert (d.1661), Master of Horse to 'Minette', and two daughters: Anne, Countess Marischal and Margaret, Lady Macdonald of Sleat. She was widowed in 1649. The prime version of this painting is believed to be lost but a seventeenth-century engraving made after it by Pierre Lombart (1612/13-1682) is in the National Portrait Gallery archive collection. It is a similar composition to a portrait of Mary Hill, Lady Killigrew of 1638 at Tate Britain.

Provenance
