Spring Sale at Bendel's
Florine Stettheimer, American, 1871 - 1944
Oil on canvas
1951-27-1Gift of Miss Ettie Stettheimer, 1951
LabelThe painter Florine Stettheimer, and her sisters Carrie and Ettie, were among Manhattan's most imaginative hosts during the teens and twenties, mixing circles of intellectuals, artists, and socialites. Here Stettheimer offers a humorous look at the chaotic world of high fashion at bargain prices during a sale at one of New York's best-known stores. She signed the painting with her initials on a monogrammed sweater worn by the Pekingese dog in the corner.
