Fisherman's Little Sister


Dallas Museum of Art

Dallas Museum of Art
Dallas, United States

Probably painted on Monhegan Island, Maine, the vibrant colors and sketchy brushwork of this child’s portrait share the same vitality as the work of artists of the urban Ashcan school. Exhibited in 1911 in Dallas, Fisherman’s Little Sister was an early purchase for the Museum by popular subscription. Alice Kent Stoddard studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and the Philadelphia School of Design for Women and led a successful career in Philadelphia and Maine as a portraitist and scene painter.
