Oscar Fehrer, (January 21, 1872–September 11, 1958)

Medium and Support: oil on canvas
Credit Line: Florence Griswold Museum; Gift of Miss Catherine Fehrer and Miss Elizabeth Fehrer
Accession Number: 1993.19.15
Fehrer painted this large, decorative figure painting in the same year, 1918, he and his family began a lifelong association with the artists' community of Pleasant Valley in Lyme. This portrait operates on several levels, the subject of the painting (and the backside of the canvas) is reflected through a mirror, a clear debt to the tradition of Vermeer. But "reflection" also refers to the meditative nature of the young woman herself.
