There is no portrait of Fanny in Chirk Castle, but there are three paintings that she painted herself. She went on a tour of Italy and copied some of the Great Masters. She was very good, and her paintings hang in a main room. In pride of place in that room is a picture of her husband, Robert Myddelton Biddulph. The tour docent also showed us a copy of a painting done by Fanny's daughter. She had left the house to marry and had done some small paintings of the rooms to remember them by. She was quiet good as well. The family name is now Myddelton and is still on the bell.
The castle is now on the National Trust, open to the public, and you can go inside about half of it. For the first time, both my camera batteries were dead. That is how I found out my charger is choosy about how the batteries are connected to truly charge them. Anyway, Jan came to the rescue with her camera, I used my iPhone, and I got some good shots anyway. I'm going to post what I took now.
