Context
High tints give the impression of spring pastel light filtered through window drapery, silhouetting the woman’s profile and the furnishings that surround her. The model for the painting was Rose Zeffler, whose relationship with the Hale family was recalled by the artist’s daughter, Nancy, in the book, "The Life in the Studio" (1969).

Featured in “Maine and American Art: Farnsworth Art Museum” with thanks to the Henry Luce Foundation and Wyeth Foundation for American Art.
