Earliest portrait of a transvestite found

telegraph.co.uk - By Florence Waters

If it weren't for the lace fichu around his neck, you might be forgiven for thinking him manlier - and even slightly less flamboyant in his dress - than your average 18th century gentleman.

The portrait, which dates to the late 18th century was attributed to American portrait painter Gilbert Stuart when it emerged at an auction saleroom in New York with the description 'Portrait of a Woman with a Feather in Her Hat' last November.
