This serene oil painting is by renowned impressionist Alice Beach Winter.
The painting is 6" by 5.5" (11.25" by 10.5" in frame) and in excellent condition. It is signed in the lower left corner. It is not dated but may be from later in her career.
Alice Beach was born in Missouri in 1877 and died in in Gloucester, Mass., in 1970. She studied at the St. Louis School of Fine Arts and later at the Arts Student League in New York.
She was a radical socialist and supporter of the women's suffrage movement. In 1912 she joined with other writers and artists in New York, such as Max Eastman, John Sloan and Art Young, to establish the "The Masses," as a radical magazine. She became the magazine's art editor and was responsible for several of its covers. She was also well known for her illustrations for Ivory Soap advertisements.
She and her husband Charles Allan Winter became teachers to John Sloan, Robert Henri, Leon Kroll, A.T. Hibbard, W.L. Stevens, Jane Peterson and William Glackens.
She concentrated on painting children's portraits and illustrations until her husband's death in 1942 because she did not want to compete with his landscapes and murals. However, after his death, she became even more well known for her impressionist oil paintings than her husband had been.
