In his Reflections series, Cadell conveyed a world of elegance and refinement, through the clothes his women wore and in the interiors they inhabited. Of his works, Guy Peploe wrote: ‘The almost complete lack of ‘angst’ in his work seems to derive from an intense love of life, a sensuous enjoyment of good living and an admiration for men who were masculine and women who were elegant’.  (Hewlett, 1988)
