Portrait of a Young Woman in a Black Hat
20th C. American

This beautiful portrait of a woman in the style of Abbott Handerson Thayer measures 24 x 30 inches and was created c. 1910. It is an unsigned oil on canvas. A member of the Dublin School, Thayer spent his childhood at the base of Mt. Monadnock in Dublin, NH, where his love of nature blossomed. His first works were watercolors of animals. Later in life he turned to portrait painting to suppliment the family income. Among his famous sitters were Mark Twain and Henry James and frequently he used his children as models.

This is an incredibly detailed original etching, image size 7 3/8 x 10 3/4 inches, 1660, cat: Bartsch-3. Jacob van Ruisdale was one of the foremost Dutch landscape artists of the 17th century. He was known for his dramatic images and his use of trees as central figures in his compositions, as can be seen in the lush branches that seem to spill forth from this etching.
