H.R.H. Princess Mary, the daughter of King George V and Queen Mary. Princess Mary would be the future wife of the 6th Earl of Harewood. This would be one of, if not the last piece of art Sargent did before he died.

Special thanks to Matt Davies, of Kansas City; and Wendy & Gordon Hawksley of Sheffield, England, all of whom e-mailed me regarding this picture almost simultaneously. Wendy added, "Harewood House is a large historic house/estate here in England owned by the Earl and Countess of Harewood (about 40 miles north from us).
