Glass plate negative of a full length portrait of Elizabeth, Countess of Desart seated, facing to the right. She is seated underneath a tree and is captured writing or sketching. Photograph taken at Osborne.

The glass plate negative has been photographed showing the coated side and therefore the image appears laterally reversed. A print from this negative exists in the Collection, RCIN 2906535.
