Thomas Hope

Tender Mourning in Style


This touching object, made of hair cut into patterns, is a tribute to a lost sister. It expresses the neoclassical style of its day with the Greek-style tomb, but also references the sister’s Christianity by the presence of a cross that has been created from bands of hair. The tree is a weeping willow, an appropriately obvious reference typical of this style of picture.
