The article discusses an 18th-century family portrait of Susanna Trevelyan, known as Suky, located at Wallington Hall in England. The portrait has often been attributed to painter Thomas Gainsborough, with over-painting by Sir Joshua Reynolds completed in the 1770s. The portrait underwent conservation at the University of Northumberland, where infrared reflectography (IR) and X-radiography (X-ray) showed changes made to the painting. The author analyzes the portrait's connections to Reynolds.
