Gift of Jane and Noble Hall, 1998

In this portrait Oakley is seated in Coglsea's dining room, facing the viewer. Everything in this symmetrical composition directs our eye to her, from the luscious blues of the dishes and vases that mimic the color of her dress, to the two ceramic bowls filled with fruit, the two candlesticks, the flowered curtains, and the painting in the background.
