Re: Name that Portrait! November 2005

Lol, nah, it's just that I'm learning so much from this thread!

Okay, here's the next one, a self portrait of the artist.

I usually don't get these, but this has to be an Andy Warhol, right?

Re: Name that Portrait! November 2005

OK, I've seen this one in person and it is BEAUTIFUL.



Where it is located, it makes you think it is by another artist . . .

Re: Name that Portrait! November 2005

Hint/trivia:

This painting hangs in a museum in a room populated by Sargent portraits. The reason it is there, though NOT a Sargent, is that the couple depicted here is related to the subject(s) of one of the Sargent paintings.

Re: Name that Portrait! November 2005

Interesting. I didn't think it was a Sargent, but the style of the clothing reminded me of his portraits. So from your hint, can we assume that this is an American painter, and date of the painting is early 1900's?

Re: Name that Portrait! November 2005

could this be a painting by Thomas Eakins. He is usually more known for his scenes of boaters and rowers, but I saw some of his portraits in the Frick muesum and they were outstanding.

Eileen, yes, turn of the century. Sargent contemporary.

Terence, no not Eakins, but good guess.

Yes, an American painter known for portraits.

Could it be Whistler perhaps.

Re: Name that Portrait! November 2005

Sorry Eileen, but no. We've covered the most famous portraitists of the time, though - and all great guesses! You're going to love this when you find out who it is . . .

Hint:
Although this painting doesn't hang in Philadelphia, many works by the artist do. My favorite hangs in Washington D.C.

Yep. I am SO enjoying this.

Hint: Studied in France. Has at least two well known portraits that feature a pet.
