I think that the difficulty about a woman's being an artist is not only that "the occupation runs counter to the usual expectations concerning women," but that
it is . . . contrary to the nature itself of woman . . . . As you say, "selfishness" is not
. . . descriptive in this connection . . . . [7/1894]

Anna Richards Brewster, American Impressionist

Curated by Judith Kafka Maxwell

While Brewster’s work has been on view in museums around the country, and there have been exhibitions of her work as recently as the 1980’s, re-introducing her work and re-interpreting it to a twenty-first-century-audience is the purpose of the travelling exhibition Anna Richards Brewster, American Impressionist. It spans her 45 most productive years and includes more than 50 plein-air scenes, portraits and still lifes, as well as some charming illustrations she did for a book written by her mother “A New Alice in Old Wonderland”, published by Lippincott in 1896. Also on view are examples of her revealing and thoughtful letters to her friend Annie Ware Winsor Allen, written from her teenage years through the early years of her marriage. The show is an examination of the struggles and triumphs of an American woman’s career in art in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
