About the Artwork

Edmund Charles Tarbell, Edmund and Eaglet, 1914. Oil on canvas, 96 × 84 in. (243.9 × 213.4 cm). Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, Promised gift of Bernard and Barbro Osher

Edmund Charles Tarbell is noted for his equestrian pictures of his children, which marry his love of family with their shared passion for horses. He was one of the few Boston School artists—or American Impressionists—who engaged with the subject.

Edmund and Eaglet is a portrait of the artist’s son, Edmund Arnold Tarbell, astride his champion thoroughbred, Eaglet. This painting won first prize at the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco, where it was shown in a special room dedicated to Tarbell’s paintings. For Tarbell, who purchased the thoroughbreds that he helped Edmund train and show, this large-scale portrait documents paternal pride in the transmission of the artist’s athleticism to the next generation.
