Portrait of Iza Duffus Hardy by Ford Madox Ford, 1872. She sits in an upholstered armchair, wearing a black dress with lace at wrists and neckline (finished with a black brooch), a gold-coloured shawl, and several strings of blue beads. Her hair is plaited and forms a crown around her head. Her fingers are interlaced, and she looks modestly down, away from the viewer.
