I have a portrait of her mama Mary Ann Holden (1783-1840), cut and repainted from an original double portrait of Mary Anne and baby Catherine by William Owen RA around 1810. The portrait of baby Catherine was sold at Sotheby’s London in 1996. See http://www.artnet.com/artists/william-owen/portrait-of-catherine-holden-when-a-child-holding-WLJf7MzJJbtZUgQ3fRa_sA2
Thank you for that link. It would be interesting to see a copy of your painting of Mary Ann Holden. There is information about her here: https://www.nottingham.ac.uk/manuscriptsandspecialcollections/collectionsindepth/family/drury-lowe/biographies/biographyofmaryanneholden(1783-1840)androbertholden(1769-1844).aspx
