"Reflections" is among the many romantic, feminine, figural compositions associated with Robert Reid’s Impressionist style. The painting's overtly decorative elements—the cistern topped by a chimera-like animal, the large ornate mirror, the flowers, the Oriental-style painted screen, and the bowl of abundant fruit—suggest luxury and opulence. The reflection in the mirror implies an airy space, perhaps tented or vaulted with a striped awning. The visual conceit in Reid's use of the mirror makes a connection between the real world (where the viewer is standing) and the magical, lavish world of the model.
