1. L’Absente (The Absent One on All Souls’ Day), detail (1889). Walter MacEwen (American, 1860-1943). Oil on canvas. Courtesy of the Telfair Academy.

    There is a spectral beauty to L’Absente, a composition fusing the physical and the spiritual realm, MacEwen covered a wide range of subjects during his time in Holland. He specializes in domestic interiors, focusing the eye on the rich, silver sunlight that flows through open windows and on quiet, intimate moments.
