But perhaps the painter just kept Elizabeth as she was, with one arm held out. In the film, Dido's odd status in this white, stratified society is made plain.

At the Scone Palace gift shop , alongside reproductions of the double portrait, you can buy cropped images showing Dido, alone and smiling.
It's an image that's been printed on to pocket mirrors, key rings, and magnetic notepads. It seems Dido Belle, for all the obscurity of her later life, is in something of an icon. Topics Art.
