The paintings of Thomas Wilmer Dewing (1851-1938) remind me of the lonely women in the paintings of Danish painters Peter Ilsted (1861-1933), Carl Holsøe (1863-1935), & amp; Vilhelm Hammershøi (1864-1916.) Dewing was an American painter Tonalist born in Newton Lower Falls, Massachusetts. He Studied at the Académie Julian in Paris, & amp; later settled into a studio in New York City. Dewing painted thin, wide-boned females, usually you alone, engaged in actions impassive & amp; situated in gauzy, dreamy, confined interiors. Dewing's scenes are infused with subtle color harmonies That pervades the entire painting, setting tone & amp; mood. These women Seem like captives of the Victorian age, both culturally & amp; sexually; & Amp; they make me feel lonely.
