Edmund C. Tarbell was considered the dean of the Boston School of Artists, as they were known in their heyday. "Ned" Tarbell may even have been thought of as the most eminent painter of his generation and there are museums and galleries all over the world with works of his on display. Personally, he's not one of my favorites and I include his portraits along with those of his good friend Frank Benson and the expatriate J.J. Shannon because of the often splendid way he painted women. I'll probably leave easel painters to return to the illustrators for whom this web log is named and dedicated. I'll keep this as brief as I can. The visuals are important, not my words and observations, and particularly not those written by their contemporaries hired out, so to speak, as art critics.
Since so many museums are uptight about using their images, I'm going to list links below so that I can't be accused of using images without their permission. Sorry,but you'll have to do the work.
