Lady in Gold, a circa 1912 painting by Thomas Wilmer Dewing, exudes a sense of soft, relaxed simplicity.
The Smithsonian writes, aptly, that Dewing had a “tonal style similar to that of James McNeill Whistler, and he banished virtually all remnants of narrative from his art.”
Meanwhile, The National Gallery of Art describes him as painting “elegant, refined women portrayed with an extremely limited range of colors and placed in sparse interiors or outdoors in soft green fields.”
That seems pretty consistent with Lady in Gold: warm shades of brown merge into warm shades of brown, forming a scene with little real content besides the aesthetic.
Nothing wrong with that, though—the result is lovely.
