1. Margaret by the Window (1915). Edward Dufner (American, 1872-1957). Private collection. Oil on canvas.

    Trained in Paris at the Académie Julian and with the expatriate James Whistler at the turn of the century, Dufner initially earned a reputation for dark, monochromatic scenes inspired by Whistler’s tonal aesthetic. By 1911, influenced by the Impressionist landscapes of Willard Metcalf, Dufner began painting bright outdoor scenes that earned him the moniker, “painter of sunshine.” Margaret by the Window brings some of that light inside, creating a lyrical interior scene of a young girl absorbed in her reading.
