Thomas Gainsborough. Mrs.
Mrs. "Perdita" Robinson was an actress, known as Perdita after her best role in Shakespeare's The Winter Tale. She had an affair with the Prince of Wales for over a year. Later the letters written to her by the Prince of Wales were bought for £5,000 by the King George III to hush up the story. Although the portrait was created after her affair with the Prince, she was painted, holding the Prince's miniature in her right hand
