Mrs. Thomas Grange Simons III (Serena Daniel Aiken)

Artist: Waring, Leila
Date: 1906

In painting this portrait Waring used the assistance of a photograph, indicative of a complete turnaround from sixty years earlier when photography threatened the very existence of the miniature art form. As a result, it is very crisp with the light being more defined than usual.
