MixTate Helena Hauff on Robert Peake

For the eighth in our series of mixes, DJ and producer Helena Hauff takes inspiration from Robert Peake's Lady Anne Pope 1615

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.
