Francis Coates Jones was born in Baltimore and studied at the Académie Julian and the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. He spent much of his life in New York City, where he was the treasurer of the National Academy of Design and a trustee of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. His Neoclassical style references the traditions of ancient Greece and Rome as well as the Italian High Renaissance. This painting demonstrates his mastery of texture and surface design in the rich drapes and folds of the woman’s robe.
