called Hannah Ludwell Lee, (Mrs. Thomas Lee, 1701-1750)

This portrait is identified as Hannah Ludwell Lee by descendants. The relationship between it and the other portrait identified as Hannah Ludwell Lee and attributed to Charles Bridges is unclear. It may be another family member or a copy. This portrait descended with a portrait identified as her husband that appears to be by the same artist. Hannah Ludwell Lee was the daughter of Philip Ludwell II and Hannah Harrison Ludwell of Greensprings. She married Thomas Lee of Machodoc in 1722.

Dimensions: 30 x 25 in. (76.2 x 63.5 cm.)
