A Lovely Lady

Last week, I came across this painting while doing research for a post on Highclere Castle.
This is Catherine Wendell, the 6th Countess of Carnarvon. She married the 6th Earl of Carnarvon, Henry George in 1922. They divorced in 1936.

For some reason, I find this painting to be hauntingly beautiful.

Maybe it is its tone-on-tone effects with just strategic pops of color. 
Or the pretty woman. 
No matter, just enjoy!
(If anyone knows, please tell me who the artist is.)
