Lawrence was one of the most highly regarded portraitists of his day. His likeness of Harriet Clements is Romantic in style and expression, with reminiscences of the classical sources favored by Joshua Reynolds. Her dress and bracelet are in the Empire style popular around 1805. The hastily indicated landscape view in the background suggests a mood of unrest typical of Romantic painting.
