books0977:

An Evening at Home (1888). Sir Edward John Poynter (English, 1836–1919). Watercolour.
The relaxed informal domesticity would suggest that the woman depicted is almost certainly the artist’s wife Agnes, but she also bears a striking resemblance to Georgina Burne-Jones (Agnes’ sister). Two Old Master Portraits in deep carved, gilt, Florentine frames reflect his lifelong admiration for Renaissance Art. Below them hangs a Pre-Raphaelite watercolour in a black and gilt aesthetic frame and another picture in a fine Watts pattern frame.
