Florine Stettheimer

This week, I discovered the delightful work of American painter, poet and designer, Florine Stettheimer (1871 – 1944) at a nicely curated show at the Art Gallery of Ontario.

I took a lot of photos, but have posted only a few here – self-portraits and a couple of the charming scenes she painted of her family and New York society.

Florine was wealthy and chose not to engage with the commercial side of the art world (probably a choice many artists would make if they could afford to). For more information about her, this post from Artnet News is interesting.
