Elizabeth Nourse was a portrait, landscape, and realist-style painter. Nourse was considered one of “New Women” of the 19th century who were successful, highly trained women artists who never married. Nourse was born in Ohio and she attended the McMicken School of Design in Cincinnati at the age of painting. In 1887, she moved to Paris with her sister and studied art at the Academie Julian and with various artists. Within a year of her arrival in Paris, she submitted her art to the prestigious Paris Salon and got accepted. During her lifetime, she had a considerable reputation as a Salon Painter and was acclaimed by fellow artists and the public. The subject of her work was often women, peasants, and depictions of France’s country landscapes. Nourse was one of the first American women to be elected a member of Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts, and won many awards in international expositions.
