The Artist's Mother

Susan Isabel Dacre 1844 - 1933

Summary

Frontal portrait of the artist's elderly mother seated with her hands clasped in front of her, offset slightly to the right. She is wearing a pale dress and a black lace scarf round her head, pinned with a brooch. This suggests the mother was in mourning. The dress is painted in dark cream with many varying folds and textures represented by the pronounced brushwork. The women looks ditectly at the viewer and there is a dark neutral background.
