        Sir Robert Ponsonby Staples RBA (1853-1943) Afternoon in The Park Oil on canvas, 50 x 60cm (19¾ x 23½) Signed While this work only bears the title ‘Afternoon in the Park’, we can, judging from the shape and design of the lantern positioned in the middle foreground of the painting, conclude that the setting is Hyde Park in London. Another example by the artist, sold in Christies 2014, with the more specific title, A view of West Carriage Drive looking onto Coalbrookdale Gate, Hyde Park, London has the very same street lights. This present example is more animated, situating us within the interior of the park, filled with numerous figures and a variety of narratives unfolding across its canvas. As a large-scale accomplished composition, it represents a rare and very fine example of Ponsonby Staples’ work. One might, on first glance assume that this crowd has gathered together under the canopy of trees, to listen to a lunchtime concert. However, we soon realise that instead the benches are a meeting spot for friends and romantic couples, respite for those out on their promenade, or simply as a vantage point to watch the passing parade. There is a constant stream of horse drawn carriages travelling up the wide throughfare and it is possible that the architectural structures in the background are one of the main gates leading out onto the street. Despite the myriad of characters, the scene is dominated by a single female figure sitting in the centre of the composition. Her positioning is similar to that of Monet’s Music in the Tuileries, which as with this work, has a female figure turn towards us, looking out at the viewer and drawing us into the scene. In this present example she is fashionably dressed, wearing a high necked long-sleeved blue gown, with a full ruched skirt at the back and an elaborate hat. She holds an umbrella in one gloved hand, while the other reaches around to her dog, who is sitting patiently behind her waiting for their walk to resume. Umbrellas abound in the scene, whether an indication of the weather, or more likely judging by the bright red example held by the woman in front of her, as a fashionable accessory for ladies of the period. He has worked quickly, applying the paint in varying directions, creating a distinct sense of texture and movement to the surface. His handling of the materials is reminiscent of the techniques used by the Impressionists in the same period. The brushstrokes are quick, employing an economy of expression, which becomes looser as he moves into the middle and background of the painting. While most likely not painted ‘en plein air’, Staples has managed to capture the atmosphere of the outdoors. We can imagine a light breeze blowing, and hear the sounds of the horses hooves against the pavement. The light filters softly through the trees overhead whose green and golden leaves suggest it is early Autumn, and still warm enough for an afternoon stroll. Niamh Corcoran, November 2022
