Re: Name that Portrait! January 2006

Hi all,
my net access has been going on and off all the time! Well, I hope it gets better...
Katherine: nice to know you´ve recovered from the flu. I guess you´re having a cold wave now in Europe and US, we are in the middle of summer here!
OK, let´s follow the last lead and see where it gets...

Re: Name that Portrait! January 2006

Hi all,
this is the portrait of Mrs. Robert S. Cassatt, the Artist's Mother by Mary Cassat! I have found the oil version, but not the print.
Greetings,
Osmar

Re: Name that Portrait! January 2006

Hi all,
here comes the next one, approximately contemporary to the previous one, but from the other side of the Atlantic!

Greetings,
Osmar

Re: Name that Portrait! January 2006

Hi all,
it just occurred to me that I think of Mary Cassat as a French artist, I forgot that she is actually American! To avoid any possible confusion: the artist is also an American.

Do you mix up Mary Cassatt and Berthe Morisot - I always do!

Re: Name that Portrait! January 2006

Hi Katherine,
I DO mix them up, yes!! I am glad to find someone who also does it, I am not alone! LOL
About the portrait: what impressed me most is the contrast of the seriousness of the eyes with the soft mouth, like the petals of a rose...
I think Lawrence is away otherwise he would have already blown the whistle on me...
Greetings,
Osmar

Re: Name that Portrait! January 2006

It's not striking any chords with me yet - clue maybe? Or have you given me one and I'm being dense?

Re: Name that Portrait! January 2006

Reminds me a little of Robert Henri, but I doubt it.

Just fishing, as usual .

Is the artist a female?

Re: Name that Portrait! January 2006

The artist is male. He was probably in the top ten list of american painters at the end of the 19th century, and he used to name his pictures after their dominating colors (this one is an exception!).

Well, that sounds like Whistler. Could it be? You know I thought of him right away due to the time frame, but didn't pursue it.

I'll have to see if I can locate this image. Be back soon!

Re: Name that Portrait! January 2006

Well, it is him! Thanks to your clue, Osmar, I was able to get it. When you said he named his paintings after the dominant colors, the White Girl sprang to mind. Of course the portrait of his mother is also known as Arrangement in Grey and Black Number 1.

The one you posted is called The Little Rose of Lyme Regis.

Thanks, Osmar, you took me on a tour of American painters at the turn of the century.

And now I will post one that I found on that tour:

Re: Name that Portrait! January 2006

Hmm, well I guess I could have edited out that writing on the top right!

It's hard to make out what it is though. But maybe somebody can use it as a clue!

Re: Name that Portrait! January 2006

The artist is Cecelia Beaux and the painting is Cynthia Sherwood. I love finding these websites with all of this fabulous art! My husband thinks I've become an addict. Healthier than drugs eh?
