Miss Harriet Clements

Thomas Lawrence (English, 1769-1830)

Currently on View in H213
Image Licensing

Lawrence was one of the most highly regarded portraitists of his day. His likeness of Harriet Clements is Romantic in style and expression, with reminiscences of the classical sources favored by Joshua Reynolds. Her dress and bracelet are in the Empire style popular around 1805. The hastily indicated landscape view in the background suggests a mood of unrest typical of Romantic painting.

Provenance research is on-going at the Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields. Please contact Annette Schlagenhauff, Curator of European Art, at aschlagenhauff@discovernewfields.org if you have questions, or if you have additional information to share with us.
