Cecilia Beaux : a modern painter in the gilded age by Alice A Carter ( Book )
3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Cecilia Beaux (1855-1942) is widely regarded as one of the leading women artists working in America in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Author Alice A. Carter expertly traces Cecilia Beaux's fascinating and unconventional life, from her proscribed Philadelphia childhood through her triumphant entry into the male-dominated inner circle of the art world of Paris, Philadelphia, and New York." "Born in Philadelphia in 1855, Cecilia Beaux pursued an artistic career with the same zeal as her male peers, and by the turn of the century she had established an international reputation. She was acquainted with many of the eminent artists of her day, including Claude Monet, Winslow Homer, and John Singer Sargent. Carter reveals how Beaux's passion for her work combined with her headstrong spirit enabled her to achieve professional success unrivaled by any other female artist - and the personal price she paid for it." "This is the first illustrated biography of Beaux's work to showcase more than 130 illustrations, including her best-known high-style portrait commissions as well as landscape and still-life compositions."--BOOK JACKET

"This volume is the most comprehensive appraisal of Cecilia Beaux's talent in more than three decades.

The book accompanies a major exhibition organized by the High Museum of Art in Atlanta."--BOOK JACKET
