    description: <div class="description"> While under-recognized today, in her lifetime <u style="background-color:yellow;" class="">cecilia</u> <u style="background-color:yellow;" class="">beaux</u> was regarded as America's preeminent woman artist, and one of the most skillful portraitists of her generation. She studied at the Pennsylvania Academy in the late 1870s but claimed that her only important artistic training had been two years of private study under the painter William Sartain from 1881 to 1883. It was probably under Sartain's direction that she began this intimate portrait of her sister and nephew, a work that marked her debut as a painter. At the Academy's 1885 annual exhibition, the picture received the Mary Smith Prize for the best work by a local woman. It was also accepted into the 1887 Paris Salon, a coup <u style="background-color:yellow;" class="">beaux</u> deemed a turning point in her career. Grounded in the muted palette of realism, the work reflects her Academy training. Although <u style="background-color:yellow;" class="">beaux</u> denied the influence, the subject and composition strongly suggest James McNeill Whistler's "Arrangement in Grey and Black: Portrait if the Artist's Mother," a work <u style="background-color:yellow;" class="">beaux</u> surely saw when it was exhibited at the Academy in 1881. <u style="background-color:yellow;" class="">beaux</u> painted dozens of closely observed, touching portraits of women and children, for which she achieved wide fame. Later in her career, her sitters included a distinguished array of international figures. The Academy holds a significant body of work by <u style="background-color:yellow;" class="">beaux</u>, including thirteen oils, numerous sketches (given by the nephew depicted in this work), and significant study materials.</div>

    description: <div class="description"> Widely regarded as the leading female artist working in the United States at the turn of the twentieth century, <u style="background-color:yellow;" class="">cecilia</u> <u style="background-color:yellow;" class="">beaux</u> was internationally acclaimed for her high-style portraits and figure paintings. Intimate and complex in mood and style, Half Tide, Annisquam River is a rare example of <u style="background-color:yellow;" class="">beaux</u>’s landscape work—the artist painted less than a dozen pure landscapes, and the locations of most of these are presently unknown. A nearby view from <u style="background-color:yellow;" class="">beaux</u>’s summer home and studio at Green Alley on Eastern Point in Gloucester, Massachusetts, this gemlike painting represents the artist’s only known landscape of Gloucester and one of her most freely painted Impressionist subjects.</div>

    description: <div class="description"> <u style="background-color:yellow;" class="">cecilia</u> <u style="background-color:yellow;" class="">beaux</u> was a leading figure and portrait painter and one of the few distinguished and highly recognized women artists of her time in America. Her figures are frequently compared to Sargent’s, but her style relates also to other international leaders of late-19th Century portraiture, including Anders Zorn, Giuseppe Boldini, Carolus-Duran and William Merritt Chase. She was born and lived mostly in Philadelphia, traveling frequently to Europe, especially France from a young age, and exhibited widely in Paris, Philadelphia, New York and elsewhere. Her first acclaimed work, Les Derniers jours d’enfance, a mother and child composition, was exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1887, and <u style="background-color:yellow;" class="">beaux</u> followed it there the next year, spending the summer of 1888 at the art colony at Concarneau in Brittany. Here she painted her remarkable Twilight Confidences of 1888, preceded by numerous studies, which are in the collection of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Lost for many years, this much admired canvas is <u style="background-color:yellow;" class="">beaux</u>’s first major exercise in plein-air painting, in which the figures and the seascape are artfully and exquisitely juxtaposed, and sunlight permeates the whole composition.</div>
