Eugenie 'Jenny' Wireman studied for a short time abroad and later with the legendary Brandywine School instructor Howard Pyle, as did the prolific illustrators N.C. Wyeth and Jessie Wilcox Smith. Ms. Wireman flourished in the early 20th century at a time when female artists faced challenges making a living as an artist.

Provenance: This, and another work by Eugenie Wireman, was found roadside 60 years ago and held in the same family since that time, as related in a 2014 taping of The Antiques Roadshow.
