Lawrence depicts the 16-year old Emily Lamb as though in motion, her head turning back towards the viewer.
The pose is one with a long tradition in the history of portraiture, but Lawrence treats it with a freshness reflected in the informality and economy of his brushwork.
Emily married the 5th Earl Cowper, and later the 3rd Viscount Palmerston.
