Louis Welden Hawkins (British, 1849-1910)
By the cottage steps
signed 'L WELDEN HAWKINS' (upper left) oil on canvas
84 x 47cm (33 1/16 x 18 1/2in).
- Please note that the model for the present lot is most likely Mere Moreau, a local woman at Grez-sur-Loing, who sat for many of the artists in the colony. The same sitter appears in Peasant Woman in a Landscape, c.1880, which is in the collection of Yvonne and Gabriel P. Weisberg, Minneapolis.
