Woman outside café, portrait (almost French nineteenth century)by William Eaton

Woman Hat Café Portrait (+ Thomas Eakins and Alice Kurtz)

Colorful portrait of a nicely-hatted woman in an outdoor café. Complete with a short commentary that quotes from the subject of one of Thomas Eakins’s greatest paintings: Miss Alice Kurtz. (The portrait, however, owes more to Degas, Lautrec and nineteenth-century Paris than to Eakins and early twentieth-century Philadelphia.)
