Date:
1876
Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 98
This fine painting shows the artist's labors in a new field, for her--that of serious, subjective delineation. It is a lady "robed in grey," wrapped in deep and sad meditation, and gazing fixedly upon the crimson-streaked sky, where her thoughts seem to dwell. The management of subject, the expression, the colouring, all so harmonize as to contribute to a fine impression. [P. 60.]
