Edmund Tarbell (American Painter,1862 - 1938)

 American Impressionist, who won numerous prizes and medals and experimented with a range of forms through en plein air painting. An extraordinary talent, he was inspired by seventeenth-century Dutch traditions and especially fond of Vermeer. His environment was his own and his wife and four children served as his models. He specialized in delicately finished, pearly interiors, and devoted a significant part of his career to capturing images of young women pursuing domestic activities, such as sewing or reading, in elegantly decorated rooms filled with antiquarian or oriental objects.
