Mary Digges, Lady Robert Manners (1737 - 1829) about 1756
  • Scottish Art
Mary Digges was the daughter of Colonel Thomas Digges of Roehampton. She married Lord Robert Manners, son of the second Duke of Rutland, in 1756. The style of her costume suggests that she probably sat to Ramsay in the mid to late 1760s. An imposing portrait of her in later life was painted by Sir Thomas Lawrence in 1826 and is also in the collection of the National Galleries of Scotland.
