Bright Eyes  1877

by John Everett Millais

The sitter, Florence Coleridge, is depicted full face, with straightforward gaze and honest expression. She wears a bright red Inverness Cape and has tucked her hands into its pockets. Such a casual pose hints at Millais' knowledge of contemporary French portraiture, particularly that of Edouard Manet.
