Oakley remained a sensitive portraitist throughout her career, depicting both friends and patrons. In this painting, the subjects -members of the Bromley family -exchange tender looks, with linked hands and bodies connecting them. The women's deeply colored dresses shine beautifully against the muted tones of the men's coats.
