1. The Yellow Jacket (1907). William McGregor Paxton (American, 1869-1941). Oil on canvas.

    Paxton often depicted refined women—like his patrons’ wives and daughters—at leisure in handsome Boston interiors of the sort that they, as keepers of culture, would have decorated and occupied. By placing a woman with the precious aesthetic objects, such as the book and fine jacket, that surround them, Paxton signaled the wealth of her father or husband.
