Stephen Slaughter

Portrait of Two Society Women

England (c. 1740s)

Oil on Canvas, 123 x 100 cm.

The Wadsworth Atheneum, Ella Gallup Sumner and Mary Catlin Sumner Collection. See Also: Ellis K. Waterhouse, The Dictionary of British 18th Century Painters in Oils and Crayons (Woodbridge, England, 1981), p. 348.

Of course you can find many images of Slaughter’s portraits in high resolution and full color online at multiple sites, but of course, not THIS one. Never this one. I wonder why. :|

Britain’s first black marchioness

Okay y’all. 

This is: Emma McQuiston

And as that says, she’s this first black marchioness Britain has ever had. 

But she’s not the only black royal

but THIS IS A BIG DEAL.

plus she’s getting snubbed like big time. The groom’s father didn’t even come. And she said things like: 

she has been snubbed by the British elite because of her ethnicity and background

SO REBLOG IT, CAUSE SHE’S GORGEOUS AND EVERYONE SHOULD LOVE HER.

Other rank’s coat, 1st Foot Guards, c. 1773. Surviving uniforms from the 18th century are rare, and those of ordinary soldiers are even rarer. This is one of two identical uniform coats, held in the National Army Museum and the Snowshill Wade Costume Collection, the circumstances of whose creation and the reason for their preservation are unknown.
