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.
