A decorative work, which has been described as a 'reverie' picture. The woman at leisure, was a popular subject in the late Nineteenth Century, and was one chosen by a number of artists, including Emma Minnie Boyd, in works such as her 'Interior with figures: The Grange', 1875, and Emanuel Phillips Fox in his work 'A Love Story', 1903.
