A Lady in Grey by Sir Daniel Macnee magnet

A Lady in Grey by Sir Daniel Macnee magnet

£2.95

Fridge magnet featuring artwork A Lady in Grey by Sir Daniel Macnee, 1859. From the collection of the National Galleries of Scotland.

This portrait of the artist's daughter Mrs Wiseman is an entrancing study of reflected light. The inspiration for the pose and the lighting effect may have been Reynolds' portrait of the actress Nelly O'Brien (Wallace Collection, London) which was shown in 1857 at the Manchester Art Treasures Exhibition. The Scottish National Gallery also has MacNee’s highly-worked preparatory oil sketch for this painting (NG 2254).
