The lady in the portrait holds a flowering sprig in her right hand. We ask Deborah Metsger, Assistant Curator of Botany at the Royal Ontario Museum to help us identify the plant as an orange blossom. We learn about where and how orange trees grew in the eighteenth century and the potential symbolism behind this botanical element in the portrait.
