Portrait of Lady Juliana Penn
Companion to Philadelphia Museum of Art, 2004-201-1
Arthur Devis, English, 1712 - 1787
This painting is one of a pair of marriage portraits featuring William Penn's son, Thomas, and his new wife, Lady Juliana Fermor. The bride and groom are depicted in interiors that may represent their family homes. Thomas stands near a window that is open to a landscape, perhaps hinting at the vast lands he controlled as proprietor of Pennsylvania from 1746 to 1775.
