Description

'The glorious paintings of glamorous women that Cadell painted between 1912 ad 1915 are a high point in his career... Cadell's sense of glamour, while it is certainly akin to that of Lavery and Sargent, is never chilly or remote, however. It is always touched with the warmth of his appreciation of beauty.'
Tom Hewlett and Duncan Macmillan, F.C.B. Cadell - The Life and Works of a Scottish Colourists, Surrey, 2011, p.161
