Lady in Red
- George Henry Hall (American, 1825-1913)
Gift of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Bentley, Sr.
George Henry Hall, who trained briefly with Eastman Johnson in New York, executed a large body of work in Seville, Spain, establishing a unique niche as one of the first American painters to work in that country. His Lady in Red painting, in which a draped Madonna-like figure sweetly implores to the viewer, certainly points to historically Romantic treatments of the figure.
