Description
In Adrian Gottlieb's oil painting, Crimson, the artist contrasts the intensity of his model's fiery locks by capturing her in a moment of thoughtful conversation. Her expression is demure as she looks gently downward, perhaps in search of a gracious reply. The subject is reminiscent of the Pre-Raphaelite artist Dante Gabriel Rossetti's muse, the red-haired Elizabeth Siddal.

“Gottlieb’s personal fascination with interpreting ephemeral, yet deep, thoughts as a form of poetic idealism in painting prompts a distinct art language that merges the worlds of Realism and Impressionism. By applying the classical skills of the Old Masters, his contemporary subjects are given an enigmatic and timeless appeal.”
