Sophie Gerhard Comment:
This painting is technically brilliant, and completely engaging – it completely stopped me in my tracks! The direct gaze of the sitter, staring slightly down at us, in her magnificent headdress. The palette is incredibly alluring, with the red halo effect of her hair, reflecting on to her back. I am also drawn to the combination of tradition and contemporary features, displayed in the feathers and off the shoulder top. This is a powerful painting, which I can only imagine matches the strength of the sitter. Fantastic! A real stand out for me.
