Portrait of Ellen M. Brown (Mrs. Ellen Berry) (1874). William Morris Hunt (American, 1824-1879). Oilon canvas. RISD Museum.
A talented amateur musician, Ellen Brown of Providence was 18 years old when she posed for Hunt. As in this portrait of Miss Brown, Hunt’s practice was to compose the figure with broad masses of light and dark, then refine details with thin washes of color and highlights of thick impasto. The preeminent American painter and teacher had social connections in Boston and Rhode Island and conducted a summer art school in Newport. Hunt received his artistic training in Paris and later promoted the work of French realist painters, applying their techniques to his American subjects.

The Green Sash (1904). Frederick Carl Frieseke (American, 1874-1939). Oil on canvas. Terra Foundation for American Art.
In Frieseke’s The Green Sash, an elegantly dressed woman assumes a graceful stance as she gathers the tiered skirt of her white dress in her left hand. Her gesture and the painting’s title evoke her attempt to scrutinize in an unseen mirror the brilliant emerald-colored sash that spills down the back of her dress. Its sensuous curve, mimicking the woman’s body, emphasizes the spiraling twist of her dance-like pose. The figure is set against the warm tone of a pale-gold wall, a boldly patterned rug, and a drapery with a speckled pattern that echoes the spotted veil covering but not concealing her face. Her averted gaze, along with the tipped-up perspective of the setting, suggests the viewer’s somewhat elevated position in relation to the model.
