Oil painting on canvas, 'The Gilded Cage' (a Female Captive) by St George Hare (Limerick 1857 - London 1933), 1908, signed, bottom left: HARE. A semi-naked woman sits in a brightly-lit stone hallway with her back up against a wall on the right. A piece of brown drapery covers her legs and thighs. Her arms are raised above her head and her hands are in chains. She looks down towards butterflies on the bottom right. The title of the picture echoes that of a popular turn-of the century song and the subject matter is symbolic.
