1. Comedia (1894). Thomas Wilmer Dewing (1851-1938). Oil on canvas. Philadelphia Museum of Art;

    Dewing is best known for his tonalist paintings, a genre of American art that was rooted in English Aestheticism. Dewing’s preferred vehicle of artistic expression is the female figure situated in a moody and dreamlike surrounding.

    "Some hundreds of years hence the historian of our time may be puzzled by Mr. Dewing’s treatment of our life, and wonder if the ladies of the day usually sat in such bare rooms or wore low-cut dresses in the daytime; but what does it matter? It is a fantasy, but what a delicate one!" — Kenyon Cox
