Print, engraving,The Sisters: Lady Sarah Frederica Child Villiers, Princess Esterházy von Galántha (1822-1853) and her sister Lady Clementina Augusta Wellington Child-Villiers (1824-1858) (after Sir George Hayter) by William Oakley Burgess (1818-1844). Both subjects seated near a table on which is a large book. Princess Nicholas Esterhazy, on left, looks at her sister and rests her hand on her sister's shoulder, her right hand on the book. Lady Clementine Villiers looking in the book has her left hand resting also on the book. The original watercolour from which the engraving was made seems to be that in the collection of Major Mansel at Smedmore, Dorset, 1980. The sisters are named underneath the engraving. Engraved after a painting by Sir George Hayter.
