About Silver

“Silver” is an artwork by Albert Joseph Moore, painted in 1886 in the United Kingdom. Created with oil on canvas, it reflects the Academicism art movement and measures 63.5 x 119.5 cm. This portrait genre piece is part of a private collection.

The painting features a woman with soft, golden-red hair adorned with a decorative, laurel-like headpiece. She holds a relaxed, graceful pose with her arms raised, elegantly framing her face, and the bend of her elbow further accentuating the classical beauty of her profile. Draped in a sheer, flowing, peach-hued garment, which clings to her form, the woman reclines on a lavish pile of cushions that echo the soft textures and pastel shades of her attire.

The detail in the painting is exquisite, showcasing Moore’s mastery of texture and fabric, which are almost tangible to the viewer. The background’s crisp, linear patterns contrast against the soft curves of the female figure, and an intricate mosaic-like detail adorns the surface upon which she sits. A silver cup rests on a shelf behind her, providing a subtle reference to the painting’s title and adding a touch of reflective shine that complements the overall palette of pale peach, cream, and cool tones. The serenity and elegance of the scene evoke a classic, timeless quality that is typical of Moore’s work and the academic style of the era.
