attributed to Johan Zoffany (1733 - 1810)
Elizabeth Gostling, Mrs William Hall
A195; oil on canvas; 66 x 50 cm
Presented by Chambers Hall, 1855; WA1855.199
The identifications of both the sitter and the artist were made by the donor, the sitter's son. The portrait is uncharacteristic of the work of Zoffany, even if a sketch, and was clearly not intended as a pendant to the portrait of her husband. No details of Mrs Hall's life are known.
