An American artist who specialized in painting refined ladies in a mist. I find the previaling greyness in his oil-paintings rather dispiriting (as can be seen in an example under the cut), and the emphasis tends to be on the clothing - and sometimes the props - at the expense of the sitter's faces, hand and individual character. This is called The Mirror and dates from 1890; the whites of the fabrics are well realized.
