Mary Lizzie Macomber was an allegorical and genre painter who created works in a style reminiscent of the British Pre-Raphaelites. A native of Fall River, Massachusetts, she studied with Robert S. Dunning (1829-1905) and Frank Duveneck (1848-1919), and briefly attended the School of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, before opening her own successful studio in Boston. Employing a deep, rich color palette and utilizing a stark contrast between light and shadow, her subjects, almost exclusively women, boldly encompass the canvas. As evidenced by the portrait presented here, this technique creates an emotionally compelling work which engages the viewer. Macomber exhibited widely during her life, including at the Pennsylvania Academy of Art, Boston Museum of Fine Arts, Carnegie Institute, and the National Academy of Design, and was the recipient of numerous awards.

1043 Edward Sheriff Curtis (American, 1868-1952), "The Vanishing Race", 1904, vintage orotone photograph, signed in the negative, 11" x 14". Presented in the original studio frame. The passing of every old man or woman means the passing of some tradition, some knowledge of sacred rites possessed by no other...EDWARD SHERIFF CURTIS. Recognized today for his images of Native American life, Edward Curtis was an ethnological writer and photographer, intent on documenting cultures he feared would soon be extinct. His twenty-volume series, The North American Indian, funded by financier J. P. Morgan, took nearly twenty-five years to complete. Almost exhaustive in scope, it included over 1,500 images and a collection of essays culled from the information contained in the countless wax cylinder recordings Curtis made during his travels and interviews. The series is available online in its entirety via Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois (http://curtis.library.northwestern.edu/). The image presented here, "The Vanishing Race", is one of his most well-known images, and stands as a testament to Curtis' intentions when he embarked on his life-long project: to create a visual recording of an endangered culture, people, and way of life.
