1. Miss Benedetta Ramus. George Romney (British, 1734 - 1802).

     Mysterious Benedetta! who
    That Reynolds or that Romney drew
    Was ever half so fair as you,
       Or is so well forgot?
    These eyes of melancholy brown,
    These woven locks, a shadowy crown,
    Must surely have bewitched the town;
       Yet you’re remembered not.

    From Benedetta Ramos, Andrew Lang, Ballads in Blue China (1880)
