Label:
Here Beaux paints her nephew in her signature quick and brushstroke-heavy style. The artist’s familiarity with her sitter makes her just as successful in capturing his personality as she is at recording his likeness. Widely exhibited shortly after its completion, this portrait helped make Beaux a much-sought-after portraitist.
