The Decorative Gardens of American Robert Lewis Reid (1862-1939)

I promise this is the last posting of romantic, decorative American Impressionists who focused on painting women in gardens. Robert Lewis Reid (1862-1939), was born in Massachusetts. He attended the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston; in 1884 he moved to New York to study at the Art Students League, and a year later he went to Paris to study at the Julian Academy, returning to New York in 1889.
