Cecelia Beaux was a leading figure in American art and renowned portraitist. Her work is admired for its elegance, realist approach and depth of emotion. Hannah Rose Hoffman Lee, a member of a distinguished Philadelphia family that traced its roots to colonial times, was known to be a leading figure in Philadelphia society with a strong personality. In this portrait, a painterly study in white and gray, Beaux captures Lee in a moment of quiet introspection.
