A Rose (1907). Thomas Anshutz (American, 1851-1912). Oil on canvas. Met.
Reflects Anshutz’s simultaneous appreciation of Eakins’s academic rigor and psychological probing and John Singer Sargent’s painterly freedom. In portraying the young woman as contemplative and yet intellectually and emotionally alert, Anshutz also anticipates the earthier women painted by members of the Ashcan School and other 20th-century realists.
