Mrs J.G. Lockhart, Elder Daughter of Sir Walter Scott, engraved by George B. Shaw after William Nicholson (1839)

From: Lockhart, J.G. Memoirs of the Life of Sir Walter Scott, bart., vol. 7. Edinburgh: Cadell, 1848.

Nicholson's portrait of Sir Walter Scott's daughter Charlotte Sophia (1803-33) in Norwegian peasant dress was painted in 1818, two years before her marriage to John Gibson Lockhart. The engraving was originally made for the second edition of Lockhart's Life (1839).
