This Aesthetic Movement watercolour, in a carved period frame, of a woman before a lemon tree on a marble bench in an Italianate setting, wearing a red velvet dress and playing a mandolin, is intended to evoke music for the viewer. The textures and pattern of materials are a typical theme of the artist.
