Description: The Enchantress signed 'ARTHUR HUGHES' (lower left) oil on canvas, laid down on board 153/4 x 9 7/8 in. (40 x 25.1 cm.) PROVENANCE The artist's studio sale; Christie's, London, 21 November 1921, lot 51 (21/2 gns to L. Missell, Jr.). Lockett Thomson; Christie's, London, 29 November 1937, lot 311 (3 gns to Robert Abbott). H.W. Auerbach; Christie's, London, 5 June 1942, lot 130 (3 gns to Willis). Anon. sale; Sotheby's, Belgravia, 6 December 1977, lot 49 (œ200). LITERATURE L. Roberts, Arthur Hughes; his life and works, 1997, no. 118 (illustrated p.180). NOTES Datable to the early 1870s, this picture is probably a sketch for a larger picture that was then never begun. A work by Hughes of the mid-1860's entitled Mariana at the Window includes the same sort of diaphanous material worn by the model in our picture. When sold in 1937 and 1942 the sitter was thought to be Ellen Terry, although recent scholarship has cast doubt on this suggestion. We are grateful to Leonard Roberts and Margaret Weare for their help in the preparation of this catalogue entry.
