A Rose, 1907

Thomas Anshutz

This finely-dressed young woman strikes a contemplative pose, yet it’s clear from her expression that she’s sharp and discerning. Her elegance and poise suggest that she’s in charge of her world as she appraises the viewer with a keen intelligence. This combination of wealth, leisure and obvious self-confidence were hallmarks of the emerging modern woman at the turn of the century, when this was painted. The title, which likens a woman to a beautiful flower, was a typical theme of the period. The model was the daughter of a trustee of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, where the artist taught.
