OUT OF THE BACKGROUND: CECILIA BEAUX AND THE ART OF PORTRAITURE

By Tara Leigh Tappert

copyright, 1994

 

Cecilia Beaux establishes the exception to the rule that though the feminine sex may imitate in art they lack power to create initial objects, for she works as the one woman in a thousand who has no man standing between herself and her productions.

- Homer St. Gaudens, 1905

 

To My Mother, Carol Louise Zannoth Tappert, And To The Memory of My Paternal Grandmother, Helen Jennett Tappert Hedegaard, Two Other Spirited Women of My Life
