This piece works best in a stylish home with classic furniture to complement the scene, but the colours and the quality of being slightly unnerving mean it works in any visual scenario.
Wright provides the viewer here with a kind of casual surrealism, with the very normal image of a figure holding a cup of tea feeling strangely alien. This is done very effectively through composition, colour, the model's stance, and the hovering clouds, which together do create a slight sense of unease about the scene. But despite the some foreign quality about the image, the classic furniture and fashion come with a real sense of style.
