Born in 1874, Charles Haigh-Wood was primarily a genre painter. His works were widely exhibited at the R.A. and elsewhere, and some of his most popular works feature gracious ladies in elaborate interiors. In the present work, a group of flirtatious ladies peer out the window perhaps having attracted the attention of a suitor who is coming to call.
