A Lady in Black (c.1925). Francis Campbell Bolleau Cadell (Scottish, 1883-1937). Oil on canvas. Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.

This elegant, fashionably dressed woman is portrayed in the lavish setting of a Edinburgh New Town drawing room. Carefully posed, her arm resting on the back of her chair, she is arrayed in a fur collar, kid gloves and with a glint of gold hoop earring against an impressive feathered hat. An added sense of light and depth is introduced by the reflection in the mirror.
