Photograph of a painting of Harriet Taylor by an unidentified artist, c. 1834. She is seen from the waist up against a backdrop of trees and sky. She wears a gown with yellow bodice and hugely puffed white sleeve. Her dark, smooth hair, centre-parted, is done in a bun behind and ringlets at her ears. A thin gold chain sits round her forehead, with a red gem at its centre matching another gem and drop pearl at her neckline. He face is stylised, with big eyes and a startled look.
