Picturing a World

Lee Lufkin Kaula

A recent post at It’s About Time introduced me to another woman artist from the period of my Palmer sisters, Lee Lufkin Kaula.

Although Kaula seems to be best known for paintings of women at leisure, I have chosen to post this portrait for two reasons:

First, it set me wondering what my Edward Murer would look like in 1902 (I doubt that he would have his portrait painted in a proudly worn dress uniform!).

Second, I found the picture at an auction house website, which is a great way to see work held in private collections.

For more of Kaula’s work, including some images that helpfully show the paintings in their frames, click here. I like specially that this mutualart site shows some painting in their frames
