1. A Ray of Sunlight (The Cellist), 1898. John White Alexander (American, 1856-1915).

    Many of his later portraits, notably of women, were psychological studies rather than specific likenesses. His brushwork became less painterly and more concerned with suggesting abstracted shapes. He also adopted a very coarse-weave canvas, the texture of which became an important element in his mature work. By applying thinned-down paint to the absorbent surface, his pictures appear to have been dyed in muted tones, in marked contrast to the glossy, impasted surfaces of his earlier work.
