William Glackens came to my attention because he began his artistic career as an illustrator, as did his friend John Sloan. His wife, Edith Dimock was one of those female artists who gave up her career upon marriage. She was very rich, so I suppose she did what she wanted to.
A traveling exhibition of Glackens’ work as an illustrator is currently on view at the Barnes Foundation (November 8, 2014–February 2, 2015). To view digital images from the foundation’s own collection, click here.
