About the Artwork

Edmund Charles Tarbell, Woman with a Corsage (Katharine Finn), 1911. Oil on canvas, 30 1/2 × 25 1/4 in. (77.4 cm × 64.1 cm). Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, Promised gift of Bernard and Barbro Osher

Edmund Charles Tarbell taught at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, for twenty-three years. In this role, he imparted his vision of a genteel New England Impressionism to a generation of young artists of Boston painters whom the critic Sadakichi Hartmann named the “Tarbellites.”

Woman with a Corsage (Katharine Finn) demonstrates Tarbell’s mastery of the portrait tradition and his distinctive approach to pose, color, and light. The model has been identified as Katharine Stafford Finn, an art student who posed for several paintings around this time. Here, she contemplates an abstracted bouquet of daffodils, a vibrant symbol of spring and rebirth, and an allusion to the world of natural beauty that exists beyond Tarbell’s studio.
