Head of a girl, Elizabeth Nourse, 1882

Elizabeth Nourse, lauded as a pioneer for female artistry in America and France alike, has left an everlasting mark on the world of art. Her realist technique was expertly applied to every subject from landscapes to portraits - such as her expansive work "Head of a Girl", which honors African-American heritage with exquisite detail and grace. Critic Henry J. Seldis aptly described it's influence through history: 'Forerunner of social realism painting'. Through this piece we can appreciate not only Elizabeth’s skillful brushwork but also celebrate the pride that radiates off its young protagonist dressed elegantly with her gaze to the future.
