Lady Caroline Paget (1913–1976), Later Lady Duff (c.1938). Rex Whistler (English, 1905–1944). Oil on canvas. National Trust, Plas Newydd.
“Whistler’s fascinating correspondence with Lady Caroline carves out a remarkable love story and reflects the depth of his passion for her and his connections with the Plas,“ explained David Ellender, House Manager at Plas Newydd. "Sadly, it would appear from the letters that any ‘romance’ between them was driven harder by Rex than Lady Caroline. Again, this is subtly reflected in much of his work.”
