The Artist Wife
- Charles Shepard Chapman (American, 1879-1962)
Gift of Mr. and Mrs. Alan Sellars
Chapman’s highly colorful The Artist Wife depicts the confident Saturday Evening Post illustrator Neysa Moran McMein in the studio, wearing a printed robe and clasping a handful of brushes. Chapman earned his living by teaching art at the Art Students League and at the University of Wyoming. He also opened a school of illustration in Leonia, New Jersey with Harvey Dunn.
