Pauline Palmer
The Russian Model

About the Item

A wonderful large self portrait of the artist with a Russian model by American artist Pauline Lennards Palmer (1867-1938). Born in McHenry, Illinois, Palmer studied at the Art Institute of Chicago between 1893 and 1898, including a one-month session with William Merritt Chase in 1897, and further temporary instruction with Frank Duveneck. She became one of Chicago's early twentieth-century portrait and landscape painters and one of the Midwest's most active and energetic exponents of impressionism. After her career was well established, she moved to Provincetown and studied with Charles Hawthorne. At the time of her death in 1938, she was considered one of the “leading woman painters in America” by the New York Times. Oil on canvas laid down on panel, signed lower left, title inscribed on verso loosely attached exhibition labels “Russian Model” (The Arts Club of Chicago Annual Exhibition 1935) and “The New Model” (Chicago Artists Thirty-Fifth Annual Exhibition 1931), along with several Hindman auction labels, and housed in a fine decorative giltwood frame. Dimensions: 42.25 in H x 36 in W, actual; 46.25 in H x 40.25 in W x 1.75 in D, framed. Ref:8
