Description

Cecilia Beaux was known primarily as a figure and portrait painter, and her brilliant psychologically revealing depictions of upper-class subjects earned her international recognition as the leading female American painter of the 1900s.

This rare landscape—among fewer than a dozen she produced in her nearly forty-five-year career—depicts a lovely view from Beaux’s summer home in Gloucester, Massachusetts. Beaux has perfectly captured the verdant countryside and the calm of a summer day in soft blues, greens, and violets.
