Art by someone in the circle of Elizabeth Shippen Green
somewhere around 1900
Annie did some research to find that this post's lovely painting was by Violet Oakley. Oakley was one of the early female muralists, creating an outstanding body of work in 60 some years of productivity. Associated with Elizabeth Shippen Green and the Brandywine tradition, Oakley deserves more recognition. I will post a bit of her mural work sometime.
