Clementina was the photographer’s second-born daughter. She may have been the favourite, but in any case she was certainly the most frequently used model. This pose perhaps suggests religious contemplation. The ingredients that Hawarden characteristically employed add to this effect: the curved chair back, which echoes the loops at the shoulder of the dress; the stripe of light on the wall, which accentuates the model’s profile; the gathered net curtain, which balances and contrasts with the weight of the dress; and the play of shadows and the band of star wallpaper.
