About the Artwork

Robert Henri, Woman in Pink, 1893. Oil on canvas, 16 3/8 × 12 7/8 in. (41.6 × 32.9 cm). Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, Promised gift of Bernard and Barbro Osher

The leader of a disruptive vanguard in American art in the early decades of the twentieth century, Robert Henri taught hundreds of students who benefited from their instructor’s democratic, egalitarian, and meritocratic ideals.

In the summer of 1893, Henri taught plein-air painting techniques at the Avalon Summer Assembly on Seven Mile Island off the New Jersey coast. Woman in Pink is set against the New Jersey dunes, and its size suggests that it was painted en plein air, possibly as a demonstration piece. While one of Henri’s students may have served as the model, her identity is obscured, transforming her into a generalized figure representing a broader experience of the seaside and its atmospheric effects.
