Monday Match: Confidence Edition

{Every week I post an image of an interior that reminds me of a work of art either in its palette, composition or mood}
Sylvie Rochon
William Strang, Lady with the Red Hat
*This room first reminded me of Strang's painting because the red table is so similar in color and silhouette to the lady's hat. But the more I studied the two, I realized that this match is really based on the particular stance of confidence portrayed in both the interior and the portrait.

Strang's Lady looks at us directly over the curve of her shoulder. We imagine that she is a woman who is almost defiantly herself. The room emits a similar presence. The curves of the two tables and the chair bend toward us and back toward the center of the room. It is quirky style is thoroughly its own: difficult to define but alluring nonetheless.
