Mrs Jordan as Viola in ‘Twelfth Night’ (c.1785-1792). John Hoppner (English, 1758-1810). Oil on canvas. Kenwood House.

Dorothea Jordan was the leading comic actress of Georgian England, and in this portrait by Hoppner, she is painted in her role as Viola from Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. In the play, Viola disguises herself as a man so she can be a page for the Duke of Orsino.
