Edith Minturn Stokes (1867–1937) and her husband Isaac Newton (I.N.) Phelps Stokes are the subject of a famous painting by John Singer Sargent, now residing in New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art.
I couldn't find much biographical information about Edith. Wikipedia has this entry on Isaac, but more about Edith can be found here.
However, the images below do indicate that Edith was a very attractive woman.
Edith is at the right of the photograph.
The original is a miniature. Edith is at the left.
Edith posed for French's giant statue for the 1893 Chicago fair. A smaller version was made in 1918, and that is the one shown above. More information about the statues is here.
This must have been painted about the time French was working on the statue.
Beaux was an ace portrait painter who had the thankless task of painting Edith a year after Sargent created his masterpiece version of. Beaux was very good, but comparing the two versions of Edith, it's hard to dispute that Sargent was even better. Well, flashier, anyway.
