Description
Gilbert Stuart painted these charming portraits of James Lenox's sisters during their visit to his Boston studio around 1810. The artist created a soft, atmospheric effect with his quick brush strokes. The girls' simple white dresses and cascading ringlets reflect the influence of classical antiquity on women's fashion in the early 19th century.
