Description of work:

Clement Rollins Grant was a Realist figure and landscape painter. At the age of eighteen he traveled to Europe, spending time in Great Britain and France. By 1887, he had relocated to New York City, where he supported himself by producing reproductive etchings of well-known paintings. Grant exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1878 and at the National Academy of Design. This example by Grant is typical of his work, often depicting women in interiors and in landscapes.
