Kelly was an English painter in oil of portraits and landscapes. During his travels he painted some of his most characteristic and charming figure studies. He became famous for his portraits of elegant women, his technical brilliance and colourful, wide-ranging subject matter.
The woman in this painting is Sasha Kropotkin, daughter of the anarchist, Prince Peter Kropotkin, and wife of the Russian revolutionary Boris Lebedev.
