Title: Rose, 1907

Artist: Thomas Anshutz (1851-1912)

For the summer, I am going to be featuring paintings for our viewers to contemplate and enjoy like this stunning portrait simply called The Rose, although the subject has been identified as Rebecca H. Whelen, the daughter of a leading figure of the Philadelphia art world. The artist was Thomas Anshutz who studied under Thomas Eakins, often considered both a legendary master and influential art teacher of the City of Brotherly Love. Periodically, I will also be contributing a blog on various subjects/topics in art and artists such as Van Gogh or Monet or even lesser known painters (but interesting!).
