Lady in Red (c. 1900)
by Talbot Hughes
English, 1869-1942 

Talbot Hughes was a British painter known for his genre, history, and landscape paintings. His work is characterized by a focus on the refinement of subject presentation, the depiction of idealized feminine beauty, and the tribulations of romantic love.

“Lady in Red” is a richly detailed work that captures the viewer’s attention through direct engagement and the presence of a musical element. The woman’s direct gaze suggests a personal connection with the viewer, inviting them into her world. The lute across her lap adds a layer of cultural and historical context, as this instrument is often associated with the arts and courtly love in historical paintings.

Hughes’ known attention to detail and skill in rendering different surfaces makes the textures of the marble, the fabric of the dress, and the wood of the lute stand out, contributing to the overall elegance of the composition.

This painting is typical for Hughes, who often features romantic and idealized depictions of women set against richly painted backdrops that reflect his interest in historical accuracy and his skill as a genre painter.
