Literary references

Letitia Elizabeth Landon produced the poem Portrait of a Girl, in the British Gallery, by T. Stewardson as part of her Poetical Catalogue of Pictures in the Literary gazette, 1823. This is probably Stewardson's Portrait of a Girl (traditionally identified as Lady Catherine Powlett, Countess of Darlington). She also includes a poem on A Child Screening a Dove from a Hawk in her Poetical Sketches of Modern Pictures within her 1826 collection The Troubadour.
