Portrait of a Lady in a Yellow Hat depicts a beautiful young women gazing at an unseen figure or event. The viewer is left to question her distraction whilst admiring the softness of her youthful beauty. The painting evokes a sense of nostalgia as Jacquet clothes his figure in the romantic costume of the 18th Century. Additionally, the use of golden tones within the painting manifest a sense of warmth and harmony, while the rich blue tones of her dress compliment the yellows of her hair and hat.

Jacquet studied under Bouguereau, forsaking many other masters and the beginning of his career was very much in the manner of his teacher. Jacquet debuted at the Salon in 1865 with an allegory titled The Day Dream. However, the following year,

he began depicting the genere scenes which would consecrate his reputation within the art world. As a result Jacquet began displaying canvases of small dimensions in which he focused on the tiniest detail and the depiction of the elegancy of the 16th, 17th and 18th Centuries.

Jacquet was awarded the Third Class medal in 1868 and around the same time he began devoting himself to the practice of portraiture. To add a comical as well as historical aspect to his paintngs Jacquet would clothe his models in the decorative outfits of the 16th Century.
