PROVENANCE:

Private collection, Colorado

Robert Reid, a native of Massachusetts and member of "The Ten," was educated at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Art Students League in New York and later in Paris at the Académie Julian. While in Paris, Reid occupied himself by painting local peasants. These early works demonstrate Reid's technical education and success with figures but often do not incorporate many of the trademarks that he is known for today.

Following his Parisian studies, Reid returned to New York in 1889 and supported himself with portrait commissions. This steady income allowed Reid to investigate more personal subjects of women enjoying private, leisurely moments. In the 1890s, Reid became well-known for mural and stained glass design. This resulted in a short hiatus from painting--which ultimately lasted until 1905. After his return to the field, Reid's work demonstrated a preference for the naturalistic and his palette trended toward soft pastels.

The present work,

Reminiscence

, depicts a wistful female seated in an interior while daydreaming of times gone by. This subject, combined with the subtle yet colorful palette that Reid's mature works are known for, demonstrates the artist's skill with painterly brushstrokes, layered patterning and varying color. The yarn, almost tangible, spills out over the edge of the bed like a waterfall of color bleeding ever so slightly into the brightly patterned carpet.

Reminiscence

stands out as an embodiment of Reid's most successful hallmarks.
