Dance Lesson

Dorothea and Francesca, 1898 by Cecelia Beaux, The Art Institute of Chicago.

From Philadelphia, Beaux was a society painter in there and in New York. Her style was similar to the work of the most famous of the portraitists of the era, John Singer Sargent.

Interesting she's from Philadelphia originally, not a name I recognize as a Philadelphian.

The dress, the warmth of regard for the subject is so apparent. I'll look for more of her work.

Thanks for this.
