Lucy Lee Robbins (American, 1865-1943)
A society beauty
oil on canvas
198 x 92cm (77 15/16 x 36 1/4in).
- This painting was exhibited in the Salon, Paris, 1890 with the title 'Sur la Selette On the stool', and was illustrated in the catalogue for th Salon exhibition.
The illustration suggests that the painting has been trimmed along the lower edge by about 15-25cm. Information from the vendor's family suggests that the lower edge of the painting had been folded over at some stage in its history.
We are grateful to Holly Williamson, post graduate student at Bristol University, for this information.
