Lady Valerie Susan ('Susie') Meux (1847-1910), née Langdon, collector and patroness [more]; she was probably posing for Portrait of Lady Meux in Furs (YMSM 230), commissioned in 1881 with Arrangement in Black: Lady Meux (YMSM 228) and Harmony in Pink and Grey: Portrait of Lady Meux (YMSM 229). By 1886 her maid was standing in for Lady Meux and the painting was abandoned shortly after.
