    A double portrait of the parents of Bishop Selwyn's wife, Sarah Harriet Richardson. Shows the judge Sir John Richardson seated in an armchair at the left, and his wife seated at the right with her hand gently placed on her husband's left forearm. She wears a full blue cap, a white dress with a broad frilled collar and a blue waistband, and a blue shawl draped around her shoulders. In her lap her hand rests on the pages of an open book. Sir John wears a double breasted navy blue jacket with two rows of silver buttons. At the far left on a table beside him, a quill pen stands in an inkpot, beside a partly visible book. The setting is the corner of a sitting room, with part of a portrait of a woman in Regency dress seen above a closed door in the background. Heavy pink curtains hang at upper right, and at left, where the curtains hangs over a gilt-framed picture.

    Phillips, Henry Wyndham, 1820-1868. Phillips, Henry Wyndham, 1820-1868 :Lady Richardson. 1837. Copied for J G[?] Richardson by H W P, August 1841.. Ref: A-439-016. Alexander Turnbull Library, Wellington, New Zealand. http://natlib.govt.nz/records/22800620

    A portrait of the mother of Sarah Harriet Selwyn, the wife of Bishop George Augustus Selwyn, shows Lady Richardson seated in a chair with her feet on a low cushioned footstool. She wears a dark satin dress with full skirt and sleeves, and a very wide lace collar that extends well over her shoulders. Her white lace bonnet has frills around the face and is trimmed with pink ribbon that hangs down on both sides.

    The original sitting for the artist was done in 1837. Harriett died in 1839 and her husband in 1841. The copy was made in 1841 for J G Richardson, probably the sitter's son.
