tiny-librarian:

This is one of six paintings of the Queen and her five daughters, commissioned by George IV and delivered to Carlton House in December 1807, which suggest that the Princesses are models of dignity and virtue from the ancient world, demonstrating every feminine accomplishment. Princess Mary is shown supporting a framed classical relief of the head of George III; painting equipment is on a table beside her and behind her is a chafing-dish under a relief of Cupid.
