Solitude - Vonnoh, Robert



American Impressionist Robert Vonnoh taught in the 1880s at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts School. He enjoyed  lengthy teaching and working assignments in Grez, France, where he studied the works of Claude Monet. His sophisticated use of color for this ruddy-cheeked, older woman in the small portrait Solitude, reveals Realist and Impressionist influences. Vonnoh also taught at Pennsylvania’s Academy of Fine Arts, which produced artist William James Glackens and Robert Henri.
