Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire, and her child. Georgiana Cavendish (1757-1806), born Georgiana Spencer, was the first wife of the 5th Duke of Devonshire and a celebrated socialite of her day. She is shown here with her first child, Georgiana Dorothy Cavendish (1783-1858), later the Duchess of Carlisle. Before this child, there had been numerous miscarriages. This engraving is by the US engraver Timothy Cole (1852-1931), and is based on the 1784 oil painting by British artist Sir Joshua Reynolds (1723-1792), exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1786 and now held at Chatsworth House.
