Miss Anna Ward with Her Dog

:

Reynolds was an astute businessman who missed few opportunities for self-promotion. Realising that doting parents love to have their children's portraits painted, he made a special effort in this field. He was very good at it, especially in portraying little girls. His portrait of Miss Anna Ward manages to be the picture of a delightful child and at the same time gives an impression of aristocratic loftiness. This was just what aristocratic parents wanted. From then on a good part of his practice was painting children.
