Leisure Hours (1863). Philip Hermogenes Calderon (English, 1833-1898). Oil on canvas.

Calderon became a leading member of the St John’s Wood Clique, a group of artists interested in modern genre and historical subjects who were inspired, both artistically and socially by the Pre-Raphaelites. Many of his pieces show female forms wearing rich, silky clothing in gently colored landscapes or, in the case of this lady, she has viewing of the landscape as one of her leisure time activities.
