Newton’s early work owed a debt to Impressionism. As a student work this painting shows why Kenneth Newton caused such a sensation at the Royal Academy Schools.

His painting of the gilded composite frame depicted to the right of the model shows remarkable sophistication and skill. The perspective is perfect and the paint is freely applied so that the frame fades to an out-of-focus impression.
