Robert Peake, ‘Lady Anne Pope’ 1615

When I was first contemplating whether or not to do this mix I had no real idea or preconceptions as to which painting or work of art would inspire me. While browsing through the Tate collection I was immediately struck by the intense, sombre beauty of this picture of Lady Anne Pope 1615 by Robert Peake. The portrait seemed to have a striking similitude with the overall feeling of music I’ve been listening to. The face evoked in me the feeling of a life of someone living in a time of darkness, suspicion, superstition and fear. I can imagine her walking through the grounds of her Elizabethan manor house listening to this on her Walkman.
