Charles Edward PERUGINI Kate

Perugini’s portrait of his wife Kate shows her wearing a sumptuous green dress over a white blouse,
facing to the right. She stands in a richly decorated room, with a stone dado and panels of scagliola,
with a relief sculpture on the left. The antiquarian style of dress adopted and the splendour
of the setting suggest that Kate is here being shown in an historical or literary role.
